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.
