It ain't haute cuisine.

So, last night I threw a buttered slice of seeded rye in the frying pan, with a big thick slice of Swiss atop it. Sort of an open-face grilled cheese sandwich. Then I surrounded it in the frying pan with sauerkraut.

My roomie looked at me like I had lost my mind. Apparently she had never seen fried 'kraut before.

Well, I thought it was yummy...

There's another way to prepare it? srsly?

Not exactly the same as the Arthur Harris version.

Did you forget to garnish it with a bit of thousand island/russian dressing?

My favorite fried kraut dish:

Fry up some diced sausage; I'm partial to kielbasa. A dab of bacon grease won't go amiss.

Add some well-drained kraut and continue frying till browned.

Throw in a dollop of sour cream and continue to cook until it warms up -- a minute or two.

Eat out of the pan.

No corned beef chunks and thousand island dressing on top? That could be awesomely delicious.

You had me holding my breath - did you really skip the mushrooms?

Rob K beat me to it.

Sound like you stopped just short of a Reuben.

Well, tune in to the History Channel. They'll run the show on the Dresden firebombing sooner or later...

(OK, in poor taste, I'll admit...)

Throw some thinly-sliced pastrami or corned-beef on there and you have an open-face Reuben.

I like frying the red kraut. It's a little sweeter - and makes me think of sizzling Baader-Meinhoff Red Army Faction terrorist bastards getting the chair they should-have...

Sounds good. Add bacon and it would be great!
