There are only 5 ingredients in this simple sausage and sauerkraut recipe that also uses apples and Dijon. And it’s paleo, whole30!
To keep things simple, I only used 5 ingredients in this healthy slow cooker recipe but you can certainly ‘jazz’ this up with more ingredients depending on your dietary restriction. This is an essential slow cooker recipe in the sense that you literally throw everything in, stir and that’s it. Since sauerkraut is sour, I wanted an apple that was on the sweeter side so I went with a gala apple. Use your preferred sweet apple. Since most sausages are pre-cooked, this is done very quickly in the slow cooker. You’ll know it’s done when the apple is soft.
Honey. If there could be a 6th ingredient that would be it. This is on the sour side so 1-2 tsp honey would add a nice balance. Again, this is not necessary, but more of an enhancement to the dish. Another addition you might want to include onion.Print
