Healthy New Year’s Turkey Sausage, Veggies & Sauerkraut Recipe
Nothing rings in the new year like sauerkraut, and we can imagine some people turning their noses up at putting turkey sausage in it (talk about unlucky in the New Year!), but it really does taste good and fits in nicely with our theme of a healthy start in 2015.</br></br>Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that this recipe is about as easy as recipes get. Here’s a look:</br></br><strong>Ingredients</strong></br></br>- 2 lbs. prepared sauerkraut</br>- 1 lb. spicy turkey sausage link, chopped</br>- 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth</br>- 4 medium potatoes, peeled and chunked</br>- 2 medium carrots, julienned</br>- 1 medium onion, chopped</br>- Peppercorns (or pepper, if none are available)</br></br><strong>Method</strong></br></br>First, pan fry your sausages to give them a nice, crisp outer layer that will help keep in the juices. Then place all ingredients into a slow cooker and stir together. Cook for 4 hours or until potatoes are tender. Check and stir every hour or so to ensure you don’t overcook the veggies.</br></br>(Technically, this dish doesn’t require a slow cooker and the veggies can be cooked separately in a <a href="http://www.atgstores.com/cooking/cooking-dining/small-appliances/rice-cookers-steamers/">steamer</a> or a covered pan with a bit of oil, but it’s nice to let the flavors mingle in a <a href="http://www.atgstores.com/cooking/cooking-dining/small-appliances/slow-cookers/">crockpot</a> if possible.)</br></br>Serve with a side of mustard and crusty bread, and here’s hoping this traditional dish brings you great luck in the New Year!
