German Sausages with Apples, Sauerkraut, and Onion

Source: Martha Stewart Living, October 2008

Ingredients

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 12 links assorted fully cooked German sausages
  • 1 large white onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 crisp red apples, such as Gala or Braeburn, cored and cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1/4 cup apple cider
  • 1 pound sauerkraut
  • 3 large sour pickles, quartered, for serving
  • 1 Kirby cucumber, peeled and sliced lengthwise into eighths, for serving
  • Assorted mustards, for serving

Directions

  1. Heat a 12-inch skillet over medium heat, and add 1 tablespoon oil. Halve sausages lengthwise if desired. Cook until browned and heated through, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate, and cover to keep warm.

  2. Add remaining tablespoon of oil to skillet if necessary. Add onion, and cook for 3 minutes. Add apples, stir, and cook until softened, 6 to 7 minutes. Stir in cider, and cook for 1 minute. Add sauerkraut, and heat until warmed through, about 2 minutes.

  3. Transfer sauerkraut to a warm serving platter, and top with the sausages. Serve with pickles, cucumber, and mustards. (Sausages and sauerkraut can be kept warm, covered, in a 250-degree oven for up to an hour.)

    This was delicious and the sauerkraut recipe is superb, definitely a keeper. Great idea to serve with the pickles and kirby cucumbers on the side as well.
