 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      large         Onion -- halved and sliced in
                         thin half moons
    2                    Garlic -- crushed
    1      tablespoon    Butter
      1/4  cup           Dry white wine
    1 1/2  cups          Stock
    1      teaspoon      Thyme -- dried
    1      pound         Sauerkraut, rinsed, drained
                         squeezed dry (get jar)
    1                    Bay leaf
                         Salt and pepper to taste
 
 Combine the onion, garlic, butter, wine, 1/2 cup of stock, and thyme in a heavy
skillet and simmer briskly for 10 minutes. Uncover and cook, stirring
occasionallly, for 5 - 7 minutes or until the onions are browned and tender. 
Stir in the sauerkraut, bay leaf, and enough remaining stock to barely cover the
contents. Simmer, covered, for 30 - 40 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the
sauerkraut is tender, lightly browned, and the liquid has been absorbed.
 Discard the bay leaf and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve mixed
thoroughly into mashed potatoes.
