2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 large onion, quartered and sliced

2 pounds smoked sausage, such as andouille, kielbasa, knackwurst, or chicken apple sausage, sliced

Steps to Make It

Gather the ingredients. Heat the oven to 425 F.

In a large ovenproof saute pan or Dutch oven over medium heat, heat the vegetable oil. Add the onion and sliced sausages and saute until the onion is golden and the sausage is lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes.

Add the apples and saute for 1 minute longer.

Add the apple juice, vinegar, brown sugar, sauerkraut, and pepper.

Add the caraway seeds, if using.

Cover and bake for 1 hour.

Serve with crusty rolls or biscuits and a tossed salad. Enjoy.
