Baked Brats & Sauerkraut is a simple, hearty comfort food meal that is perfect for a busy night! Pop this in the oven, toast some fresh bakery buns and in about 30 minutes, dinner is done!



  • 12 fully-cooked brat sausages
  • 1 lb. bag of fresh sauerkraut
  • 15 oz. can diced tomatoes


  1. Preheat oven to 350* and spray a 13×9 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Stir the sauerkraut and tomatoes (both undrained) together and spread in the bottom of the baking dish.
  3. Press the brats about halfway down into the sauerkraut mixture.
  4. Bake about 30 – 35 minutes (turn sausages over at the 15 minute mark) until brats are warmed through.
  5. Serve brats in toasted bakery buns and top with sauerkraut mixture.


We like the stadium style brats, but you can use your favorite fully-cooked sausages. I normally find the bag of fresh sauerkraut in the meat department or by the sausages.
