This is the last of that languishing jar of sauerkraut. I actually really enjoyed this dish, it was caramelised and yummy with the crispy potatoes on top.
Kielbasa and Sauerkraut Skillet Bake (from Platings and Pairings)
1 onion, chopped finely
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 red pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
1 tsp fennel seeds
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
Pinch of cayenne
salt and pepper
125ml dry white wine or vermouth
2 tbsp chopped parsley
400g kielbasa sausage, sliced
450g sauerkraut, rinsed and squeezed dry
5 tbsp sour cream
1 cup shredded Emmental cheese
2 potatoes, thinly sliced
1 tsp oil
Preheat the oven to 200C.
Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a large oven-proof frying pan over a medium heat. Add the shallot, garlic and red pepper and cook until softened. Add the sliced sausage and saute until beginning to brown. Add the sauerkraut, mustard, fennel seeds, cayenne, and pepper, and stir until heated through, about 4 mins.
Add the wine and parsley and cook for an additional 2 mins. Spread the sour cream over the mixture and sprinkle with cheese. Toss the potato slices with 1 tsp oil and the salt. Arrange the seasoned potatoes in a tight formation over the sauerkraut mixture and bake for 40-50 mins, until the potato slices are browning at the edges and the mixture is bubbling. Serve.
