While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Bet you never sausage a celebration - it's National Frankfurter and Kraut Week!
For some folks, this combination of tangy sauerkraut and flavorful hot dog is an irresistible combination. Luckily, there's a whole week dedicated to this dish, so no resistance required!
Sauerkraut is basically fermented shredded cabbage; hence the "sour cabbage" translation. During World War I, U.S. sauerkraut producers labeled it "Liberty cabbage" due to concerns that Americans may reject anything with a German name. Consider it the precursor to Freedom Fries.
Put the two together, and you have a very German delicacy that can't be rivaled. Unless of course you want to go Old World traditional and whip up a frankfurter and kraut skillet. Feel free to say Danke Schoen to that.
