Slow Cooker Bratwurst & Sauerkraut

Time for another edition of the Secret Recipe Club.  This month we were assigned Mostly Food & Crafts. Danielle is a stay at home Mom with two children.  She loves to cook and make crafts when she has time. She has a Friday Frenzy Blog Hop that we have been a part of and lots of great family friendly recipes to choose from.  I was bringing over dinner to my daughter who just had her baby and picked this recipe as soon as I saw it because slow cooker cooking is always quick and easy and this recipe makes a bunch. Perfect for four people for dinner with a little leftovers. And since we are a part German family we love Bratwurst.  I served this with German Potato Salad and a salad.  I also want to make the Garlic Knots in Bread Machine and the Lasagna Soup sometime soon.    

2 packages Bratwurst (5 bratwurst in each package)
2 cans sauerkraut 14.4 oz. rinsed and drained
2 medium apples, cored, skinned and chopped
6 strips bacon, cooked and chopped
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup apple juice (I added)
1 tbsp ground mustard (I didn't have)

Place the bratwurst in the slow cooker.  Cover with sauerkraut.

Top with chopped apples and cooked and chopped bacon.

Add chopped onions, brown sugar and apple juice.  Mix.

Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Serve on hard rolls with mustard.

  3. This looks so good. I'm drooling just a bit... :)
