16 ounces italian plum (roma) tomatoes
1 pound, ripe, cored and chopped
1 ½ tablespoons apple cider vinegar
3 teaspoons brown sugar
1 ½ teaspoons thyme
freshly chopped, or 1/2 teaspoon dry
salt and black pepper
to taste
4 sausage
any you favorite kind, uncooked
4 sandwich rolls
½ tablespoon olive oil
or canola oil
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 cup sauerkraut
drained, or as needed
½ cup stock
vegetable or chicken


Preheat the grill.

To make the tomato-jam:

In a small saucepan, mix together the tomatoes, vinegar, sugar, and thyme.

Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, reduce the heat to medium or medium-low, and simmer, stirring, until most of the water has evaporated and the mixture becomes a thick, chunky ketchup consistency, 18 to 22 minutes.

Season with salt and black pepper. Set aside.

To grill the sausage:

Grill the sausage, turning a few times, until cooked through and dark golden-brown marks all over, 12 to 16 minutes.

During the last few minutes of grilling, grill the rolls, about 1 minute per side.

While the sausage is cooking, heat the oil and the cumin seeds in a small saucepan over medium heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

Stir in the sauerkraut and broth, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring, for 8 to 12 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper.

To assemble the sandwich:

Spread the tomato jam equally on each of the sandwich rolls and then top a sausage over the jam.

Place the sauerkraut over the sausage. Press the sandwich slightly, serve and enjoy!
