1 Tbsp.

vegetable oil

2 Cups

drained sauerkraut

1/2 Cup

dark brown sugar

1/4 Cup

Dijon mustard

1/4 Tsp.

Optional ingredient: dried thyme


McIntosh apples, skins on, cored and cut into thin wedges

Salt and ground black pepper to taste



Cut each sausage into 4 equal lengths, then cut each section lengthwise, but not all the way through, so sausage lies flat. Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat until hot.  Cook sausages 4 minutes per side or until lightly browned.  Remove from skillet and keep warm.


Lightly toss sauerkraut, brown sugar, Dijon mustard and thyme (if desired) to combine.  Fold in apple slices; pour into same skillet and top with sausage.


Cover and cook 5 minutes over medium heat or until apples are tender.  Add salt and pepper to taste.
