Chicken Sausage with Quick Sauerkraut

Today I decided to take the day off and do all the catch up from being gone for a long weekend, running errands, meal planning, laundry and cleaning with a little bit of relaxing.  ;) Tonight is the first Patriot's game of the season! John was debating whether or not to go out and watch the game with friends or stay in, he was still tired from the weekend so we decided staying in was the better option. So I decided on making a football game worthy meal sausage and sauerkraut with seasoned fries. The ingredients:

  • 1 package(s) (12-ounce) chicken sausage
  • 1 teaspoon(s) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1  (small) onion, sliced
  • 1  Granny Smith apple, thinly sliced
  • 1 package(s) (10-ounce) shredded cabbage, preferably finely shredded
  • 1/4 cup(s) cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1 cup(s) apple cider
  • 1 teaspoon(s) caraway seeds
  1. Cook sausages in a large skillet over medium-high heat until brown on all sides, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Heat oil in the pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and apple and cook, stirring constantly, until beginning to brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Add cabbage, vinegar and salt and cook, stirring often, until just wilted, about 2 minutes. Add cider and caraway seeds; bring to a boil. Return the sausages to the pan, cover, reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the sausages are heated through and cabbage is tender, about 10 minutes.
These were surprisingly not that bad for you. My version the calories were probably a little higher due to the sausage I used.

For the fries I cut up some potatoes and coated them with a little evoo, taco seasoning mix and cayenne pepper and baked them at 425 for 30 min or until crispy.

John really like dinner, the cabbage was a little on the sweeter side but paired with the spicy sausage it was a good combination and the fries were a little spicy. (anything spicy in his book is a win)

Now off to watch the Pats win!!!
