"This is a family recipe passed down from my grandfather and my father who still make every New Year's Day. It's the best. Trust me, you'll love this recipe. It's original and kinda simple. It's 'old school.' Serve with Jewish rye bread, butter, and horseradish. A good side is mashed potatoes with cheese, milk, and butter to create a rich, creamy, tasty mashed potatoes to go with the dish."

This is good, but my mom really doctors up the sauerkraut to make it super tasty. She cooks up some bacon, removes bacon and sautes an onion in the bacon fat and then lays the sauerkraut on top...

Just like my mom and grandma used to make, right down to the Jewish rye bread! I never got their recipe so I was glad to find this. Rinse the sauerkraut a few times in fresh water to cut down t...
