Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

My husband is a big fan of kraut, but he thought it was too sweet. But the kids and I enjoyed it. Next time I will probably leave out the sugar since the apples and the juice will probably lend enough sweetness on their own. Great recipe! Submitted by:

I love this recipe. My husband was Hungarian and I have a similar recipe with homemade noodles.Will use turkey sausage and spenda brown sugar Submitted by:

I replaced the kraut with cabbage. I also followed the reader that suggested Splenda brown sugar blend. I cut down the amount I used too. Submitted by:

Figuring 4 sausage to a # and ea. sausage @ 200 cal. (which is probably too LOW) = 800 cal. minimum and @ 6 servings leaves it at 133.33 cal. just for the sausages, so the nutritional analysis has to be WAY off. Submitted by:

I am Polish, Grandparents on both sides coming from Poland. My Grandma used to make something simliar to this. She made her sauerkrauet from scratch first of all. She never rinsed it & never added sugar (which is good hubby is diabetic). This sounds so sweet I will leave out the sugar too Submitted by:

This was super good but I know that calorie amount is off can anyone tell me the true calories? I used turkey smoked sausage. Other then that followed it to a "T" Submitted by:

This was wonderful! My 22 yr old son really liked this and has asked me to make it again! However, check and compare the calorie count for splenda brown sugar blend and regular brown sugar. I found that splenda was 20 cal/tep and the regular brown sugar was 15 calories/tsp. Submitted by:

This recipe looked so good I decided to try it with some alterations. We are going on a trip and I had 1/2 of a small head of cabbage to use so I sliced it thinly. I sliced an onion thinly and put half in the crockpot. Then I added the sausage, added 1/4 c cider vinegar and about 2 T brown sugar. Submitted by:

I make this dish a lot - almost the same except with apples, apple sauce or juice, it needs no extra sugar! Our Oma (German for Gramma), taught us how to make it. I also use dill and a small amount of shredded carrots. The apples give it all the sugar it needs. Submitted by:

that's the way my Polish Momma use to do it.
good an a hot day with some mashed potates on the side.
but for health sake I use splenda bown sugar, and Turkey keilbasa,(fresh).

Love turkey sausage, I'll give this a try. A little more sugar then I like, might cut back on that. Submitted by:

I've made something like this before, omit the brown sugar and if you like the sauerkraut tart, don't rinse, hubby is polish descent,,If you find the sodium to high boil the sausage for a bit and take out the salt and fat intake??? and cont with recipe as directed. Submitted by:

My husband likes sausage and I like sauerkraut. I'll use a turkey kielbasa , onions and a cut the brown sugar in half. Sounds good to me! I'll let you know tomorrow! Submitted by:

Loved it. No sugar needed Submitted by:

Enjoyed this recipe. Will probably add a bunch of onions next time. Likely will decrease the sugar, the apples and apple juice added enough sweetness for us. Submitted by:

Old recipe of mine, skip the sugar, use the sauerkraut from 'fridge section; rinse well; Nonfat/low salt Chicken broth instead of apple juice ; skip the salt; one apple and cook it on the stove. I also add an onion. Heck, I'll post this one. Submitted by:

I use brown sugar with my sauerkraut but only about 1 tsp. Never used apple juice/cider, but wine instead. Might try the apple juice but leave the sugar out altogether. I also start it with sauteeing diced onions and diced bacon w/most fat removed. Yummy! Submitted by:

In agreement with many of the previous comments, you don't need the sugar, as the apples and cider/juice give it that perfect tart sweetness. I also make it with plain cabbage, by the way, and it's nearly as nice. Submitted by:

This is a German recipe that I grew up with, only when my mother made it is was without the brown sugar. Love the apples with the kraut. Yumm Submitted by:

I make a kraut dish similar to this with bratwurst apple and onion but I don't use sugar or apple juice. The apples and onions add enough sweetness on there own. Submitted by:

I used to make this special for my Grandfather. You have just reminded me of how good it was...........thanks Submitted by:

I'm polish and in Poland we used to eat something similar to this as a side salad to some kind of meat and potatoes. But we used just the sauer kraut, shredded tart apples, a little bit of onion and a bit of shredded carrots plus salt and pepper. It's easy to make and its a different kind of salad. Submitted by:

I didn't have any apple juice or cider so I used freshly squeezed orange juice from a tree. I didn't add the salt. I used Jenny O turkey sausage, a 2 oz. piece is 100 calories and only 5 grams of fat. There is no way the nutritional info is correct on this recipe. Submitted by:

I used turkey kielbasa and used brown sugar splenda (1/2 the amount called for) and OH MY is this good. The house smells good and it tasted great. We'll make it again! Submitted by:

report inappropriate
I used 2 lb of sauerkraut and full-fat kielbasa (it was on sale...). I increased the amount of spices and apple juice a little but halved the brown sugar, and it turned out GREAT! The flavor is intense though, so I eat it with wheat bread, brown rice, etc.

(P.S. Try adding diced potatoes!)

Flavor was outstanding. Just a little sweet will cut sugar back and try the splenda brown sugar to cut calories. Submitted by:

Delicious! I think I'll use less sugar next time. Instead of apple juice I used white wine and it worked great. My boyfriend who comes from a Polish family asked me to make it for their next family gathering! Submitted by:

YES! This is so good. I altered it a bit, smaller can of kraut, one Granny Smith apple, and no apple juice or brown sugar. In the crock pot less liquid is needed and it was sweet enough with apples. Still very good. Submitted by:

This sounds absolutly delicious, can't wait to make. But do I really need to add the sugar? I'm not fond of sweet foods. Submitted by:
