Crockpot Sauerkraut & Bratwurst

Time: 8 – 10 hours

I like to use a crockpot on days when I know I will be rushing home from work to take one of the kids to some sports event, but they need to eat before we go! This recipe is super simple and I put it on as I am leaving to work in the morning. The kids just boil some potato chunks, toss them with butte and parsley and then add the sauerkraut and bratwurst. It is a delicious, healthy meal. As well, I have paired it with an Oktoberfest tune, as it also is a great dish to enjoy with a pint!
