Final Notes for the Sauerkraut and Sausage Casserole Recipe
➡️ Sauerkraut and sausage casserole is one of the food recipes that I cook often in wintertime. I simply love both smoked sausage and sauerkraut, so a casserole featuring both of them is the perfect way to cook and enjoy hearty food.
➡️ Most often, smoked sausage and sauerkraut are fried together and served simply in this way. What is pretty unusual in the recipe that I share on this page is the addition of tomatoes. Since I cook this dish mostly during winter, there is hard to find fresh tomatoes, so I use instead chopped canned tomatoes or very thick tomato broth. Both are very good to prepare food that will delight everyone!
➡️ I came up with the idea of using tomatoes because the food containing only sausages and fried cabbage is too dry, at least for my culinary taste. Tomatoes have the role to make gravy and enrich the food with an aroma that fits very well with the rest of the ingredients included in the sauerkraut and sausage casserole recipe.
➡️ As for the flavors, thyme and cumin match very well with both the smoked sausage and sour cabbage. If you don’t like cumin, simply skip over this spice or replace it with ginger powder.
➡️ This casserole is usually served without any side dish. However, if you want to enjoy an even more nourishing dish, you might boil some potatoes and serve the casserole added over them on the plate. Boiled pasta can be used as well.
➡️ My sauerkraut and sausage casserole recipe is very easy, so you don’t need any advanced cooking skills to get perfect results. The food is ready in a short time and you need just a couple of ingredients, so you can easily make fantastic food that will spoil you on a cold winter day.
➡️ Finally, you need to use a smoked half-raw sausage type for the best results. Sausages have to be not too dry, not too raw, so the perfect sausage type is something like the Polish sausage named Kielbasa.
