Rosemary Bacon Kraut

Tess Geer Recipe

Is there a bacon lover in your family? Are you tired of plain sauerkraut? This recipe is a great change of pace! Serve as a side or a topping for hotdogs or brats. Great with a spicy, brown mustard.

Directions Step-By-Step

Place sauerkraut in a colander to drain.
Mince rosemary making sure to remove any bits of woody stem.
Cut bacon into 1/2" pieces. I like to use kitchen shears.
In a large sauce pan over medium heat, saute bacon in oil until medium crispy, about 8-10 minutes, stirring frequently. Add rosemary and cook stirring constantly for 30 seconds.
Add sauerkraut and stir to combine. Reduce heat to low and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove to a serving bowl. Serve warm or refrigerate and serve cold. My family loves it with this mustard:
Hot and Sweet Whiskey Mustard

    Yum. Definitely going to try this with the brats. I have homemade kraut and rosemary in the garden. Cannot wait to try this. Thanks for posting!

    I vacuum seal freeze my rosemary on the stalk at the end of the year. Works great. My son-in-law who hates sauerkraut likes this!

    This was very good. Used it on some good old fashioned weiners (also a little spoonful by itself!). Will be using this again! My son in law's family always has kraut with the turkey at Thanksgiving. I had never heard of that before but it goes quite well. This would be good to try.
