RECIPE: Sausage and Sauerkraut

Ready for the easiest paleo meal ever? It's two ingredients and involves a crockpot.  Plus it's healthy for you!  Win, win, win!



Sausage and Sauerkraut

-25oz of raw sauerkraut (the ingredients should only be cabbage, water, salt- I used Bubbies)
-2 10oz packages of all natural Lil' Smokies (again whole ingredients- no nitrates- I used Pederson's)

Place all ingredients in a slow cooker.  Cook on low for four hours or until you reach your desired tenderness of the sauerkraut.

I put mine in storage containers for lunch later this week!

You can totally play around with the ratio too.  Like more kraut?  Omit a bag of smokies.  You could also use sliced sausage.

I've never tried either of those things but now I'm curious! The kraut reminds me of spaghetti squash and I absolutely love that!

Do uou think you could use your salt and vinegar cabbage recipe as the sauerkraut? I'm thinking about trying it this week.
