I love sauerkraut but the rest of my family aren't fans, but even my family enjoyed sauerkraut cooked this way served with rye bread. Adapted from Slow Cooker Cooking.

I wanted to update my review to say that I have made this on the stovetop several times in the last two years, with half the sauerkraut called for, and sometimes other sausages. It is always delicious! I have prepared it in the crockpot a few times too. thanks for sharing!
