Good German recipe! If you don't like sauerkraut, try this. It has lots of bacon and sugar. My DH loves this dish. (He's not German :) My ancestry is 100% German.

My son and I really enjoyed this side dish. He lived in Germany for a few months while in school, and always talked about his host family's cooking. "Oma" would prepare a similar dish. We included this with schnitzel, spaetzle, and black forest cake for our annual German dinner. Thanks for helping us bring back great memories for my son.
