I always enjoy sauerkraut every year once the weather takes a slight turn in August- I can feel the early changes in season coming on, and invariably, I always begin to crave sauerkraut. There are so many ways to enjoy sauerkraut, except perhaps dumped straight out of a can into a saucepan and heated. Whoever invented that can keep it.

Once the weather is cooler, this makes a great dip to serve while watching football.

We are Packer-Backers here and enjoy watching quarterback Aaron Rodgers clean up the riff-raff in the neighborhood.

Not that your team is riff-raff. Of course not!

But some teams are and they know who they are. 

Of course, Cheeseheads love their cheese and fortunately, there is lots of cheese in this! Even though I am not from Wisconsin so don’t necessarily have to abide by the cheese law  that emanates north of Chicago. But who can resist cheese?

Also,  I do have some German in me, so kraut is good, and another thing is good (Pretzels!) and I can’t think of a better thing to dunk into this dip that a pretzel rod. This dip has tons of garlic and just the right zip from the kraut to pair with a crispy pretzel.

And it has bacon. Sold yet?

So I hope you enjoy and don’t forget to make this before the game- if you do and happen to remember, it does come together really quick once the cheese is softened.
