We love this easy crock pot recipe! Sauerkraut and potatoes just seem to go together. Add some Polish sausage and you have a meal in a pot! This is real comfort food and my family is all about comfort food. We love easy crock pot recipes and this one is definitely a keeper. You can cut this recipe in half or double it for a group of people. This dish is even better the next day after it has been refrigerated overnight.
If you will microwave your potatos a few minutes just to soften them a little, they’ll fry much quicker. Don’t cook them all the way through in the microwave, they’ll end up mushy. Let them cool a little after the microwave, then chop into smaller pieces for your skillet. This works well for general baked potatos too. After the microwave, just pop them in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes and they’ll taste like they’ve been in there for hours.
