Ingredients:

Sauerkraut:
  • 3 cups coleslaw mix
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon caraway seed

Lightly shape sausage mixture into four 1/2-inch patties.  Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add patties; cook 10 to 12 minutes or until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally.
