Kielbasa Apple Caraway Sauerkraut Skillet


When my kids were growing up they loved this meal. These flavors just go together. Something you might not know about me is I LOVE SAUERKRAUT!!! When I was in grade school one of my best friends Dad and Mom were from Germany. Her Dad made the BEST homemade sauerkraut. Oh my gosh, I LOVED IT! When we would have a sleep over I would ask for a bowl of his sauerkraut when everyone else was having cake or ice cream. Oh yes, it was that good. It tasted nothing like our American sauerkraut. I’m not big on sausage or Kielbasa, but you add sauerkraut, apple, caraway seeds, and potatoes to it and it is delicious!
