You’ll need just a few ingredients to make this sauerkraut and kielbasa recipe:
- Baby potatoes – You can use any type of baby potatoes, I recommend baby yukons or baby red potatoes.
- Olive oil – Use a high-quality cooking olive oil for best flavor.
- Kielbasa sausage – Look for a high-quality kielbasa smoked sausage.
- Sauerkraut – You can look for a refrigerated sauerkraut or find it in a can – either option will work. You can also look for a raw sauerkraut, but I would just serve it cold on the side. If you aren’t a fan of sauerkraut, you could omit it. (I love sauerkraut so I wouldn’t consider! ;))
- Extras – We found this kielbasa potato and sauerkraut recipe was simple and delicious all on its own, but I do have a few ideas for extras if you’re interested.
- Sliced onions – Use white onions or sweet onions and bake along with the potatoes.
- Caraway seeds – Sprinkle caraway seeds onto sauerkraut mixture.
- Rye bread – Rye bread makes a great side.
- Dijon mustard – Serve with a side of dijon mustard for dipping.
How to Cook Kielbasa with Sauerkraut
Let’s make this easy recipe! Here’s how to make it:
- Prep ingredients. Slice potatoes in half. Slice kielbasa into 2″ pieces on the diagonal.
- Prep potatoes. Place potatoes on half of the baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and place cut side of potatoes down on the pan in a single layer.
- Make aluminium foil pan. Fold a large piece of foil into a small tray that will fit on the other end of the sheet pan.
- Drain sauerkraut. Drain as much liquid as you can from sauerkraut and add it foil tray. Place the kielbasa slices on top of the sauerkraut.
- Bake. Bake sausage, potatoes, and sauerkraut in a preheated oven until potatoes are tender and golden brown.
- Serve. Serve with a dollop of sour cream if desired.
Store leftover kielbasa in an airtight container in refrigerator for 2-3 days.
How to reheat
Reheat leftovers in the microwave or a 350 degree F oven, just until hot.
How to Serve Kielbasa and Sauerkraut Recipe to the Whole Family
I get it, feeding kids can be tough! But following the Division of Responsibility and knowing your job and your child’s job makes it SO much more enjoyable. You’ll be able to feed this meal to the whole family, which will help ensure that they are eating a variety of nutritious foods – with plenty of play food sprinkled in. 😉
I recommend serving these components separately and serving this along with some milk, bread, and fruit – that way if they decide not to eat any of the meal, they are still eating a balanced meal.
