BBQ Sauerkraut and Italian Sausage Bake

I have to admit, I am not a fan of sauerkraut.  Never have been and would shun the mere thought or mention of it.  I’ve changed my mind about it long as it is Sweet and Spicy BBQ Sauerkraut, I’m on it!  I added Kyvan’s Sweet BBQ Sauce to make this fantastic kraut dish.  A link for Kyvan Giveaway is below.
