Yep I'm tryin' a fattie. I'm off to a slow start but Here's what I did so far;
Pepper bacon n Kielbasa from Winona Frozen Foods, there a great small place.
I will use a bacon weave with 1 lb of beef inside it, then mashed potatoes, then kraut and, finally, kielbasa. I thought about some mild cheddar, or Colby between the meat and potatoes but I'll try it this way first.
I put 7 cloves, 2 bay leaves and 2 Tbsp relish in the kraut when I cook it. My recipe and it works well with roasted ribs. I'm hoping the Kielbasa has enough fat to combine into it like the ribs. I will make the taters really dry and drain the kraut really well, too. I need to remember to score the sausage to let the fat run.
Lotsa taters, just a little butter, milk n salt. I have plans for the extra taters.
You did count your cloves, didn't you? I'll 4 or 5 next time instead of 7. I usually use 8-10 for 3 lbs of kraut.
Anyway, the potatoes hot cold when I was doing work search stuff so they turned to dough when I tried beating them. I'll get more tomorrow and pick it up from there.
Thanks for the critiques,
