Sauerkraut and Kielbasa


1⁄2 cup butter

1 medium onion, diced

3 garlic cloves, minced

1⁄2 teaspoon ground thyme

Salt and pepper, to taste

3 potatoes, peeled and diced (I used small Red Creamer Potatoes

1 (16 ounce) bag sauerkraut, from the deli aisle

1 lb kielbasa, cut into 1/2 inch pieces (two if you’re a sausage lover)


Put the butter in a pan with the diced onion, and slowly bring to a simmer on medium heat.

This brings out the sweetness of the onions.

Simmer for about 10 minutes.

Add minced garlic and simmer 2 more minutes.

Add next 3 ingredients.

Combine with the sauerkraut (undrained and not rinsed), kielbasa and potatoes.

Bring to a simmer on the stove top.

Cover loosely with foil and place in a preheated 225°F oven for 3 hours.
