Sloppy Ottos (German Version of Sloppy Joes)

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by ugogirl

Because of my German heritage, I try to use the month of October to cook more German-inspired foods. When my sons were younger, they loved sauerkraut and any dish that contained it. This was a favorite of theirs and I liked that it was a one skillet, easy and tasty sandwich. I served it with German potato salad. Yum!!

I made this for dinner tonight for myself, my son & father. All enjoyed but I wish it would have had a tad more seasoning. VERY easy to make and I enjoyed the sour cream w/ the sauerkraut. Thanks for sharing!
