Baked Sausage and Sauerkraut with Apples

Serves 8 to 10
Time 1 hr 35 min
Sautéed apples and sauerkraut bring a sweet and sour flavor to the otherwise savory pan-fried sausages. Most commonly found in the German-speaking area of the Alps, this delicious entrée is often served with a dab of dark, spicy German mustard on the side for dipping.

Method

Preheat the oven to 325°F.

In a large oven-safe skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium heat.

Cook onion and rosemary sprigs until onion is golden, about 10 minutes.

Transfer to a plate and set aside.

Add olive oil to the skillet.

Add sausages and cook, turning, just until skins are browned, about 5 minutes per side.

Remove sausages to a plate.

Add sauerkraut and sautéed onions to the skillet.

Place sausages on top.

Mix wine and chicken broth together.

Pour slowly all over the top.

Add bay leaf to the middle of the dish.

Cover with a lid or foil and transfer pan to oven.

Bake for 1 hour.

Meanwhile, prepare apples by melting remaining 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet.

Add apples and cook until just tender, about 8 minutes.

To serve, spoon baked sausages and sauerkraut onto a serving platter.

Top with cooked apples. Serve piping hot with spicy mustard on the side.
