The Bratwurst Sauerkraut Pan dish is very easy to make and a different way to make Sauerkraut with Bratwurst. This is great for the Oktoberfest but you will love it as a dinner on a cold winter’s day as well! In Germany we like to use a pan and add all the ingredients, let it cook until it is done. If you use sausages such as Frankfurters or Wieners add them 5 min before the dish is done. Find the German Sauerkraut at Cost Plus or selected supermarkets. Whole Foods Sauerkraut is as good as the German one. Happy Cooking!
