I love sauerkraut and hot dogs but I usually open a can of kraut and warm it up with the hot dogs in a skillet, no extras added. This recipe was very good and I enjoyed the sweet sour flavor. Had a 32 ounce jar of Clausen sauerkraut and Ball Park bun lenth hot dogs and instead of the 1/2 cup of water I used the juice from the kraut. Next time I will chop the onion finely as I didnt care for the larger pieces and I only used 1 tablespoon of brown sugar. Served with mashed potatoes and enjoyed my supper very much! Made and reviewed for the In Memory Of Stacky5's cookathon.
A really nice way to fix kraut and sausage or dogs. I did cut back on the sugar (personal preference), and my sister's both said I could cut back even more. Otherwise, this is a great comfort food. Served with mashed potatoes. Thnx for posting, Stacky.
This was an excellent and simple way to prepare kraut. The sauerkraut is very adaptable and I think this would be great with a mixture of wursts, such as smoked sausage, Polish sausage, chorizo, bockwurst, Mettwurst, franks or bratwurst. Thanks for sharing! ~Sue
Really easy to put together and a nice change from regular saurkraut! My bf said that this is "pretty good!" and I thought so, too. Actually, at first I was a little concerned, as the taste didn't strike me as that great right away. Halfway through my first serving, it kind of sank in nicely though. I did have to make one change; I had no red wine vinegar, so I had to sub that with apple cider vinegar. When I was measuring the amt though, the bottle tipped kind of heavily so I dunno if that's why it overpowered the kraut so much, or if it was just b/c of the kind of vinegar it was. Either way it was better tasting the longer I ate, hehe. I saved the leftover kraut for another dinner to mix with the leftover regular kraut (I halved the original recipe for 2 ppl). But omg you should have seen how the franks absorbed the liquid, they nearly tripled in size! I laughed when I opened the lid. I will let you know how this worked out for leftovers w/kielbasa. Oh, btw, the franks I used were Omaha Steaks brand gourmet beef. Thanks so much for sharing this Stacky! :)
Great tasting! I modified to better suit my low carb diet by eliminating brown sugar and adding a couple of splashes of balsamic vinegar. I also used cajun spiced sausage. Easy and wonderful. I bet the leftovers will be great too. Thanks for posting. Smilynn
Great lunch . . I used smoked brats instead of franks . . . thanks for sharing!
Stacky, the recipe sounds great and the franks in the photo look delicious. Can you tell me the brand name? Thanks!
I had this for lunch today. Very Good, thanks for submitting. Nick's Mom
I'm typically not wild about sauerkraut, but this recipe is an exception. The flavors blended so well, it was more like sweet/sour kraut, and very tasty. I used a real good quality beef frank and a regular hot dog bun. We'll be making this again, and I plan to make the sauerkraut when having brats next time.
We really enjoyed this for dinner.Very tasty.
