We love this meal and it is so simple in the crockpot. Sauerkraut and potatoes just seem to go together. Add some Polish sausage and you have a meal in a pot! This is real comfort food and my family is all about comfort food.2 (14 ounce) cans sauerkraut, undrained (or 1 (2 pound) bag) 5 or 6 potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks 1 cup water 1 pound Polish sausage, cut into chunks (could use smoked sausage) 1 teaspoon caraway seeds 1 bay leaf 1/4 teaspoon pepper Place sauerkraut and potatoes in slow cooker, add spices and water. Place sausage on top. Cook 4 hours on high or about 6 hours on low or until potatoes are done. Makes 6 to 8 serving. Enjoy! Click to join The Southern Lady Cooks on Facebook.
