That’s right!! My favorite comfort food of all time. I have eaten this as a child, made by my mom, years ago and still make it to this day. The German kraut/bacon I make was a side dish for many of our meals [Check out the Roladen recipe as well in the recipe page]. This meal has changed over the years from just kraut and fresh hocks to how you see it today in my recipe page. That’s why I call it a gumbo, with it’s many added ingredients. And that in turn, makes this dish so addicting. Check it out and give it a try. If you like kraut, then you will LOVE this comfort food!!!
