I had some sausage in the fridge I needed to use up...so came up with this one. I grew up eating sauerkraut and for as long as I can remember, I've loved it. Hoping to get my girls on the bandwagon too. This is a very simple dish to make, easy on the wallet too. Happy cooking!

- COST PER SERVING:$2.54
- COURSE: Main Dishes, Side Dishes/Vegetables
- 1 (1 lb.) ring kielbasa or similar precooked sausage
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 tablespoon caraway seeds
- 1 (1 lb.) package sauerkraut, rinsed and drained
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 2 cups jarred, unsweetened applesauce, warmed
- Cut kielbasa on an angle, into 3- to 4-inch pieces. Warm oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add onion and caraway seeds. Cook, stirring often, until onion is slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Add sausage and cook, turning often, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
- Place sauerkraut on top of sausages and pour in broth. Season lightly with pepper. Cover and cook until warmed through, about 10 minutes. (If sauerkraut seems too wet, boil rapidly for a few minutes. As it boils and liquid evaporates, flavors will also be concentrated.)
- Serve hot with warmed applesauce on side or with mustard, if desired.
