That doesn't sound great :/ But I know a lot of people like it on a brat, and I love plain brats.

It's great on a Reuben sandwich too... toasted rye bread, pastrami, melted swiss cheese, a light dusting of kraut and thousand island dressing.

Here's a quick way to try Kraut:

1 jar of commercial Kraut ( let it drain in a collander)
1 small onion, minced
3 pc bacon chopped
1 small potato grated
1 small apple grated
rye seeds
German sausage of your choice ( Pre Cooked)
apple juice

in a decent size kettle:
Brown bacon
add onion cook till clear
potato
kraut
apple
stir all that around , if its sticking pour in some Apple Juice
add Sausages and more Apple Juice
Cover and steam until sausages are done.
NO ONE has ever not liked this dish

Kraut is definitely an acquired taste. i hated it as a kid but now i love it and put it on any type of sausage or hot dog i eat.

Wouldn't a quick way to try kraut just be to buy a can of it and put it on a hot dog?

Canned kraut sucks. Get the bagged stuff in the cold section of the grocery store instead. :wink:

Boars Head makes a descent kraut that you can buy bagged in the specialty foods area... It usually comes in 16 oz. bags and isn't too expensive

Great... now I'm hungry.

I love kraut. Really... it's not very expensive. Just pick some up and put it on a grilled beer brat with some mustard. :D
