Fried Chicken Sandwich
Nothing makes a fried chicken sandwich more enjoyable than accompanying ferments. One of our favorites for adding to sandwiches is the Dill Pickle Kraut because it punches that perfect fermented cabbage tang while also bringing pickles to the plate. That said, you can really use whatever flavor kraut you have on hand.
Don’t forget to spice things up! What we love most about this recipe is that it doubles up on Thirty Acre Farm fermented goodness––so grab your favorite kraut and your favorite hot sauce and get ready to cook!
