A very traditional way to go forward in the new year with a first meal.
Creamy sauerkraut makes a great side dish for things like grilled smoked sausages and pan-fried pork chops.
In the Queen City of Ohio, Cincinnati, we love our wursts and we take it to an art form.
The Reuben sandwich is filled with corned beef and lots of cheese and grilled to crispy goodness on rye or pumpernickel bread.
Crispy little croquettes stuffed with sauerkraut, potatoes and cheese. Great appetizer!
This is a regional tradition for those living in Wisconsin and misplaced expats. A must for any Green Bay Packer tailgate! SImmering the fresh bratwurst adds a depth of flavor and finishing them on the grill gives that nice POP! when you bite them.
Delicious with pretzel rods and autumn entertaining.
This is a local Dayton Ohio favorite!
Sauerkraut Cabbage Rolls are styled after the St. Augustine Church of Waynesville Ohio, served each year at the Ohio Sauerkraut festival.
This is grilled and makes a nice meatloaf shape that can be carved into slices as an elegant grilled dinner item with a sauerbraten type of gravy or made into German burgers by serving on a bun, with an extra slice of swiss melted on top. It’s different, to be sure, but in a good way, and it is delicious and all my family enjoyed.
