Top each burger with kwik kraut and a slice of Swiss, cover grill and cook an additional 1-2 minutes until cheese has begun to melt. Spread mustard on each slice of rye according to personal preference, sandwich burger between two slices and serve.

- Kwik Kraut Instruction:
- Heat a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add olive oil, garlic and onions and sauté until soft. Add cabbage and stir to combine. Pour in apple juice, water and vinegar and reduce heat to medium. Cook mixture, stirring occasionally for approximately 10-15 minutes until cabbage has become tender and most of the liquid has evaporated. Drain sauerkraut in a colander, squeezing out any excess moisture and add sugar to taste if too bitter. Refrigerate sauerkraut until ready to use.
