Krautkrapfa is a noodle dish stuffed with sausage, bacon, and sauerkraut. I wanted to try recreating this dish the first time I saw the picture. I already had a jar of sauerkraut in the fridge too. I’m not sure if I have ever had anything like it before though.
The first step was to decide how to make the filling. I opted to include shiitake mushrooms and a Field Roast frankfurter in place of the meat. Mostly because I already had them in the fridge. I fried the mushrooms with some smoked sea salt, and then added the chopped field roast and apple kraut. Given more time I probably would have thought of something else to use instead of the Field Roast. However, it did add a nice flavor.
Next I made a pasta dough, and rolled it out into a rectangular shape as thin as possible. The filling was spread on the dough, and then the entire thing is rolled up. The same way you make apple strudel! Next, I made slices and placed them into a pan.
Finally, I poured veggie broth over the entire thing covered, and baked it. The end result was amazingly delicious. Well worth the time spent making it. Next time I may change the filling to something a little healthier.
I served my krautkrapfa with steamed kale. It was so good, Mr. EastHill Vegan gave it two thumbs up!
