This was a staple at my table growing up. Although the spices are something I added as my taste become more sophisticated. This is also a great inexpensive tailgating dish. It can be doubled, tripled depending on your appetite and the amount of people you want to serve. Even people who don't care for sauerkraut like this, well most do....
