Most of us are familiar with the classic Kraut and Wienies. You know, you heat a can of kraut, chop up some hot dogs and cook it all together for about 10 minutes. Well, this is a really elevated version!
1 T. olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, peeled, sliced lengthwise and thinly sliced
1 green bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
1 T. minced garlic
1 lb. smoked sausage, sliced
32 oz. kraut, drained
In a large skillet, add olive oil and heat over medium heat. Add onions and bell pepper and cook for 5 - 6 minutes, stirring frequently. Add garlic and cook for 1 - 2 minutes.
Add sausage and increase heat to medium high. Cook until sausages have browned, about 8 - 10 minutes. Continue to stir so that onions/peppers don't stick.
At this point, you'd have a delicious meal! You could add this to a toasted bun or hoagie roll and have a lovely dinner.
But then you add the kraut and stir to combine all ingredients and let simmer for 5 minutes or so over low heat. There you go! A delicious one skillet weeknight meal.
