Choucroute garnie is French for sauerkraut baked with sausages and potatoes. Traditional choucroute is usually made with goose fat, sausages, pork and ham and is wonderfully full of flavor. But a serving can top 900 calories and have almost 70 grams of fat.
I wanted a lower-fat version that I could enjoy more often. This recipe eliminates the high-fat sausages, using lower-fat turkey and chicken sausage instead. There’s no goose fat, just a small amount of oil to saute the onions, carrot and garlic. And the casserole is baked in low-fat chicken broth and a small amount of white wine.
The finished dish is full of flavor and one of substance. Serve it with French bread and a crunchy salad.
