    Bliss, you might say. I have just discovered adding sauerkraut to a hot dog with mustard. Zing-o! It doesn't taste like sauerkraut, but a new dimension in taste for me. How did I miss this?

    Ball parks have condiment stands with sauerkraut, no?

    It’s pretty good with brats, too.

    And, as a bonus, when you add sauerkraut, you're reducing your chances of coming down w/ scurvy, mate.

    Peace - Deeve

    How did you miss that? ;)

    To be fair I'm of German heritage so adding sauerkraut to sausage is second nature!

    Mom used to cook up a big batch of sauerkraut and smoked sausage. Good eats from my childhood.

    A good brat, seared in a hot pan with a bit of Coors Lite to aid in the searing... dash of spicy mustard and just a touch of sauerkraut... man oh man... that’s some good eating right there!

    Here in NC, we have chow chow, kind of a cousin to sauerkraut. Pickled cabbage, peppers, and spices. Great stuff. Not standardized at all, you'll find different versions all over the place.

    Natural casing dogs on real bakery buns with kraut and mustard are soooooo good.

    I remember going to Souldier Field with my dad when I was 6 or 7 and I was stunned that there was no ketchup on the hotdog stands. My father informed me that people from Chicago would never put ketchup on a hot dog. I was so confused. Who are these mystical people from Chicago who don’t add ketchup to the mustard and kraut.

    I had so much to learn.

    It's totally irrational, but I have never been able to put sauerkraut in my mouth. I don't even know what the mouth-feel of sauerkraut is like, but my brain tells me I won't like it. My taste has matured enough now that I can I try different foods without a second thought, but I still never try sauerkraut because I already know. Yeah, it's a certainty. I won't like it. No reason to even raise it to my lips. Spaetzel, on the other hand . . .

    You have been cheated during your life. How could this oversight possibly happen? Perhaps previous monastery life?

    Dude!!! Have you been in prison? Oh...wait...Iowa...I hear they think black pepper is ethnic food out there.
    In NYC, you order "One wit ev'ryting" and get mustard, kraut and stewed onions.
    Nuttin' like it.
    I suppose you've never had a knish....

    When I was a kid, I hated sauerkraut. Couldn't stomach it at all. Then two things happened to me...

    - For one year of high school, I was a long-distance runner on the Track & Field team. We went to Moscow, Idaho for a meet. The night before the meet, we went out to a place called Black Forest Pizza. Basically, German-themed food in pizza format. EVERY pizza on the menu had sauerkraut. I got a variety that didn't list sauerkraut as one of the ingredients, but when I got back to our table... yep, sauerkraut. I managed to eat it without choking and it was surprisingly good.

    - The mother of a friend of mine offered me sliced kielbasa fried (FRIED!) with sauerkraut when I was visiting. I couldn't turn down my friend's mom, so I warned her that I might not like it but gave it a taste. It was delicious. I ate a whole plate full.

    I've been a fan of sauerkraut ever since. ESPECIALLY with some sort of meat accompanying...

    Had a week skiing recently
    One of the lunch breaks involved a chicken kranski hot dog with sauerkraut and mustard.
    That was a very good day..

    I absolutely hate sauerkraut! But Dogs or brats cooked in it? Sign me up. Just scrape the sauerkraut off. That's good food. :)

    Ha! I just had bauernwurst with a big fat helping of sauerkraut and horseradish mustard for dinner tonight. I can still smell it on my beard.... mmmmm delicious. Unfortunately because it's Nashville the table next to us was a bachelorette party in the process of getting drunk.

    My Irish grandma married my German grandpa and learned to cook some delicious German food. I used to love her sauerkraut when I got older. When I was a kid I couldn't stand it.
