Glazed Knockwurst

Glazed knockwurst adds tons of flavor to many kinds of sausage such as knockwurst, smoked, or Polish and makes a meal on a bun or with a side of kraut.

Glazed  knockwurst is my  recipe of the day. This is a super quick, simple and delicious way to prepare knockwurst, or any cooked or cured sausage for that matter. Try this with smoked sausage or kielbasa, mettwurst or whatever you prefer.

This would be really good with sauerkraut or red cabbage, but does make a nice plate to go alongside other meats at a cookout or backyard barbecue, leaving the grill open for other things.

Not my original recipe- I had seen this on the Southern Food About website back when it was still around and with  a little searching discern that  it may have originated from  a Family Circle magazine ca. 1972.

It is very retro, and we used to have sausages like this all the  time for dinner.  Usually on  a bun, but sometimes on a plate with  a side of kraut and something  like scalloped potatoes. When  I did the pictures again, I had the kraut shown, as well as some  broccoli salad.
