6 links of cooked smoked German sausage; 1 kg. sauerkraut, drained; 1 green pepper, diced; 1 tsp. caraway seeds; 1/2 tsp. dill weed; 1 tbsp. brown sugar; 2 tbsp. sunflower oil; 1 tsp. careway seeds; 2 tbsp. coarse Dijon mustard; 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese; salt and pepper to taste.
Heat the oil in a large heavy pan and brown lightly the sausages. Remove the sausages from the pan and set aside. Add the sauerkraut to the pan and saute for 3 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients, except the Swiss cheese, and stir well. Transfer everything, including the sausages, to a casserole dish and top with the shredded cheese. Cover with a lid and cook in a preheated oven at 350 F for 25 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly. Let the casserole sit out of the oven for 10 minutes after it is ready, and serve.
