  • 12 ounces baby red or yellow potatoes, diced into very small bite-sized pieces (I cut the larger potatoes into 8 pieces or the smallest potatoes into 4 pieces)
  • 5 bratwurst links (3.8 ounces each), cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 14 oz can sauerkraut, drained
  • ½ cup beer (or substitute with chicken broth, beef broth, or apple cider)
  • Optional for serving: chopped fresh parsley or thyme
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a large baking dish, oven-proof skillet or Dutch oven with cooking spray and set aside.

  2. Place diced potatoes and Bratwurst in the bottom of the prepared dish. Add sauerkraut among the potatoes and sausage.
  3. Pour beer over top. Cover and bake for about 1 hour, or until potatoes are tender and sausage is cooked through.
