Sauerkraut Mit Kielbasa

READY IN: 8hrs 10mins
Recipe by DrGaellon

Modified from a recipe I found on - removed the potatoes to make it more Atkins compliant, changed the sausage to turkey kielbasa for low-fat.

This recipe is really more about the method than an exciting new flavor experience...but that being said it nails that yummy sweet/sour/astringent flavor experience that you would want from a sausage dish. I halved the recipe, and since my crock pot is huge I was afraid of burning it so I put the layers in an 8 x 8 pan and baked, covered, until the onions and apples were tender. I did add a pinch of dill; just seemed like the thing to do. I also skipped the cheese and served with noodles since DH and I aren't low carb-ers. Next time I will add more caraway, just based on personal preference. Thanks for posting; I will definitely make this again and will try the full recipe in the crock pot next time. Made for My 3 Chefs.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place half the sauerkraut in a slow cooker, and top with the sausage. Cover with the remaining sauerkraut, apples, and onion. Pour chicken broth over all, and sprinkle with caraway seeds.
  2. Cover, and cook on high 3-4 hours or low 6-8 hours.
  3. Place each serving in a broiler-safe individual bowl or casserole, sprinkle with Swiss cheese and place under broiler for 1-2 minutes until cheese turns bubbly and brown.
