This came out wonderful! It looked so easy, I had my husband put it on while I was at work. He used 2 lbs. of kielbasa and 1 lb. of hot dogs and it worked out great. It was cooked on high for about 4 1/2 hours, which I think was a bit too long, because the meats got a little too soft, but it could not be avoided...no one was home to turn it off! I think if we let it go for 3 hours or so, it would have been perfect. The sauerkraut was absolutely delicious and the caraway was not overpowering at all, which was what I expected. I think the apples disapeared during cooking, but the potatoes were very good also. We had this with potato and cheese pierogies. Thanks for sharing this delicious dish!

I left out the potatoes, (lower the carbs), and also the apples. I just love sauerkraut, but not with apples. But...other than that, I followed the recipe. This was very, very good! The caraway seed was just right. And the kraut with the sausage AND bacon......YUM! Thanks, Ann for another great recipe!

I had an odd hankering for sauerkraut and chose this recipe to make...it was a smart move. I added a chopped onion, which I cooked a little bit after the bacon got almost crisp; then I added the rest of the ingredients to the pan and cooked it on top of the stove for around 21/2 to 3 hours on the lowest setting. Instead of cooking the potatoes with the sauerkraut, I made some mashed potatoes to serve alongside. I'm not usually a fan of caraway, but it was delicious in this recipe. This is a wonderful, fail proof dish that will be saved in my cookbook!
