    I grew up asking for sauerkraut instead of candy as a child, and my grandfather always made it for me. This is my version of what he would make.

      Bless yer Grandpa's memory! This is just a savory delight! I gilded the lily by sauteing the onion and garlic with very lean chopped bacon (about 6 oz.), using Bell's Seasoning for the thyme and sage, adding a half cup of white wine, and tossing in a diced apple (apples, onions, garlic, and potatoes all home-grown)...
      This is an outrageously good recipe - thank you, thank you, thank you!

      My husband loves kielbasa-I on the other hand do not care much for it...I tried this recipe for him and not only did he rave about it so did I. It was very easy to prepare and I love that I could put it together and throw it in the oven and go for swim and so on while our dinner was cooking.

      I've used this recipe several times and love it. I don't add the potatoes though since I make this with potato pancackes. This is now my go to kielbasa recipe.
