Place the sauerkraut, wine, butter, thyme, and bay leaf in a saucepan and bring to the boil.
Turn the heat down and leave to simmer for 15 minutes, stirring every now and then.
Season to taste with salt & pepper and allow to cool.
Remove the bay leaf.
Mix the mayonnaise, mustard, chives, and parsley together in a small bowl. Set aside until later.
Heat the rookworsten.
Cut the sausages on a deep diagonal into thin, broad slices.
Split the bread rolls and spread generously with the mustard-mayonnaise.
Top with sauerkraut and the slices of rookworst. Serve immediately.
If you can't find rookworst, you can substitute kielbasa or any other smoked sausage.
