Sunday night dinners are a different ball game, aren’t they? Growing up we never had a formal Sunday night dinner because Ma made us a big Sunday afternoon dinner with all the fixin’s. So Sunday night was always something simple like an omlet, buttered pastina, or Elios frozen pizza then off to eat it all in front of the TV while watching the “Million Dollar Man.” Sunday night dinner is the same way in our house now, pretty much a fend for yourselfer. While in Germany, Himself’s brother and family lived in the next village over and we shared many Sunday night suppers together. These Kielbasa Sauerkraut Buns made the menu many times and are so delicious. With the temps dropping, I find myself digging into the ole recipe box for warm and comforting recipes like this one.
Kielbasa Sauerkraut Buns- Adapted from an old Taste of Home recipe
5 strips bacon, sliced
1 sweet onion chopped
1- 14 ounce can sauerkraut, drained
1/2 pound kielbasa, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup brown sugar
one box Hot Roll Mix
1 egg yolk mixed with 2 t. water
In a large skillet, over med-high heat, fry bacon until crisp. Remove bacon to a paper towel lined plate. Drain off most of the bacon grease leaving about 2 T. in the pan. Add onions and fry until translucent and starting to brown. To the onions add sauerkraut, kielbasa, garlic, bacon, and sugar. Cook about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. While the sauerkraut mixture is cooking, make the hot roll mix according to the package directions. Remove sauerkraut mixture form the stove. Divide the dough into 12 equal balls. Roll each one flat and fill with 1/4 cup sauerkraut mixture. Pull dough together to close bun pinching the seams together. Place seam side down on a greased cookie sheet. Brush each bun with egg wash and sprinkle with poppy seeds. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 16 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 12 buns.
