Simple Sauerkraut and Weenies

Get dinner on the table in a hurry with Simple Sauerkraut and Weenies.


If your family is anything like mine there are nights when you just can’t seem to get supper on the table fast enough. This is where Simple Sauerkraut and Weenies is perfect. One skillet, a handful of ingredients and about 20 minutes are all you need.

Do I Have to Use A Particular Sauerkraut?

Not at all. Use your favorite whether it’s from a can, bag or jar. You’ll just need about two cups. I used canned sauerkraut this time but have used one in a jar many times in the past.

What hot dogs should I use to make Sauerkraut and Weenies?

This is another question of personal preference. There are several brands we like so I get what’s least expensive that trip but feel free to use a fancier brand. You could even use sliced smoked sausage or kielbasa is you desired.
