  • Yield: 4 servings
  • Prep time:15 Minutes
  • Cook time:8 Hours


  • 1 1/2 pound(s) red new potatoes (about 18), halved if large
  • 2 cup(s) sauerkraut, drained
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup(s) low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup(s) dry white wine
  • 1 teaspoon(s) caraway seeds
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 1/2 pound(s) bratwurst links
  • 1/4 cup(s) chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • Toasted dark bread (such as pumpernickel), butter, and whole- grain mustard, for serving


1. In a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, mix together the potatoes, sauerkraut, onion, broth, wine, caraway seeds, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Nestle the bratwurst in the vegetables.

2. Cover and cook until the potatoes are tender, on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours (this will shorten total recipe time).

3. Sprinkle the bratwurst, potatoes, and sauerkraut with the parsley and serve with the toast, butter, and mustard.
