  • Cook: 1 min

Ingredients

6 slices smoked fatty bacon, chopped

1 medium onion, peeled and sliced

1 quart Frank's Kraut, undrained

1-2 14.5-oz. cans chicken broth

1 12-oz. can or bottle cheap beer

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 cloves garlic, minced (optional)

brown sugar, to taste

6 fresh bratwurst, 1 lb. kielbasa cut into 6 pieces, or 12 hot dogs

mashed potatoes

Directions

1Place chopped bacon in a large, unheated saucepan. Place over medium heat and fry, stirring occasionally, until bacon browns

2Add onions and fry until soft

3Add kraut and fry briefly to heat through, then add 1 can chicken broth, beer, pepper, and garlic (if using.) Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer 30-45 minutes or until kraut is tender.

4dd more broth if liquid reduces too much.

5Taste and add brown sugar, a tablespoon at a time, if needed, to take the "whang" out of the kraut, but not too sweet.

6Poke sausage beneath surface of the kraut, cover, and cook another 15 minutes. Serve with mashed potatoes.
