    Default Davy's Famous Sauerkraut with Kohlbassi and Sausage Balls

    This is a big recipe and may result in leftovers. It's actually better the second (or third) day.
    It fills a big turkey roaster.

    3# seasoned loose breakfast sausage
    3# kohlbassi
    1 head of cabbage
    2 bags or 2 cans of sauerkraut
    1/2 cup uncooked rice

    Preheat oven to 350
    Open, rinse and drain sauerkraut
    Shred cabbage.
    Mix cabbage and sauerkraut together and set aside

    Parboil rice in 1/2 cup of water. You don't want the rice fully cooked. It will finish cooking in the oven.
    Mix the rice and sausage. Use the rice sparingly or your sausage balls may be too starchy.
    Form sausage into golf ball sized balls.
    Cut kohlbassi into 1" slices

    Layer the roaster.
    1 layer of sauerkraut, layer of sausage balls, sauerkraut, kohlbassi, sauerkraut.

    In the roaster I use, I typically get a full layer of sausage balls and a full layer of sauerkraut.

    When the roaster is full, add a quart or so of water.
    Cover, close vent and bake for 2-1/2 to 3 hrs.

    I serve over mashed potatoes.
    You can also do this in a crock pot but will need to reduce the recipe

    Hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

    MmmmMmmmmm...That sounds so good Davy.

    I like the idea of par boiling the rice before putting it in the oven. Good idea.

    When I was a kid, my Grandpa made something similar to this. He got kraut from a neighbor lady.
    He put the kraut in a roaster pan, and added keilbasa or polish sausage chunks and potatoes, peeled and sliced long ways into 6 or 8 wedges. A bit of butter on top,covered and into the oven til the potatoes were tender. Very yummy.
    I make this occassionaly, Hubbys not a big kraut fan. I add a little carroway seed to the kraut. ......................pigz

    My wife likes the carraway seed. I'm neutral because mom didn't use it. But I don't mind it
