“This is my version of Brats and Sauerkraut. The slow cooker makes it very easy to throw together on the morning and then get all my errands done on a weekend day without having to worry about making time to cook a delicious dinner for the family. All the ingredients could be prepped the night before to make it even easier to throw it together in the morning. I used 2 slices of green pepper, 2 slices of red bell pepper and 2 slices of yellow bell pepper rather than using all one color because I had them on hand after having leftover toppings from homemade pizza night, and I thought the different colors would give the meal more visual appeal. I used to hate sauerkraut as a kid, but my mother never rinsed it, which made it taste very sour. I find that rinsing the kraut takes away some of the sourness but still leaves a lot flavor. Italian sausage can be substituted for the brats.”
