Nacho Cheese Recipe with Sausage and Sauerkraut

Last week I was a lucky girl to enjoy a few days in downtown Portland with our friends who live there, and to create a Nacho Cheese Recipe with Sauerkraut and Sausage, inspired by the sauerkraut-tasting at the Olykraut booth at the Farmer’s Market.

We started off early, worked out down on the water front, then made our way up through the Farmer’s Market. Or, I should say, we ate our way through the market. :)

The produce was gorgeous, as always, the flowers smelled SO good (lavender!) and we ended up at our favorite little booth of the day, the sauerkraut booth, where we indulged in each flavor, excited to get home to whip up a new recipe. It’s fun to try something new!
