How to Make Sauerkraut, sausage and dumplings
- Slice the sausage into 1 to 2" pieces and brown in a 1 tablespoon of butter. Remove from pan. To the pan add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and slowly saute sliced onions and thinly sliced apples. When soft add brown sugar and cook for awhile longer until caramelized.
- Transfer to a dutch oven and add the drained sauerkraut and wine to the pan. Add the sausage and potatoes (if using) and cook slowly, covered, for up to two hours.
- Lightly mix the baking mix and milk together. Bring the sauerkraut mixture to a light boil and drop small dumplings (about 3-4 tablespoon size) atop. Let cook for 10 minutes, uncovered. Remove cover, lower heat and cook for 10 minutes more until dumplings are done. Enjoy!
