I love sauerkraut and sausage type recipes and I love this recipe. Not only was it easy to prepare, but filling too. I enjoyed the flavor of the smokey kielbasa with the kraut and potatoes. Also, this recipe is very economical to buy ingredients for if you buy the store brand rather than the name brand of canned products. I look forward to the leftovers. I am planning on mashing up some of the leftovers and frying them into small pancakes. YUM!! :)

My husband & I do NOT like kraut but love keilbasa & potatoes so we gave this receipe a try. We used all canned foods. It was really great! Remember to cook the full duration. The smoky flavor is to die for!

Was so suprised at how salty this turned out! Was the salt from the sausage or the saurkraut?? Bottom line, we didn't like this one. The sausage was sort of dry and everthing else was too salty to eat.

I made this recipe yesterday. The recipe itself was very easy to prepare and it did smell rather European in my house when we came home. However, the meal received only one thumbs up from my hubby but two thumbs down from myself and a guest. There's nothing wrong with the recipe, it turned out fine and was everything it claimed to be. If you really like sausage/kraut recipes, then for sure try this one but it's not one I'll be repeating again.

I very much liked this one. I used fresh potatoes and drained the kraut and washed it to remove so much of the salt but subsituted a little chicken broth for the liquid in the kraut and the flavors and smokey taste were wonderful. will add to my monthly menus. Thank you.

A note for those who think this is too salty: Rinse the sauerkraut very well in a colander, shake excess water, and then rinse very well a second time. This will get rid of most of the excessive salt. Also try sweetening this dish with about 1-2 tablespoons of sugar.

Wow! The kielbasa melts in your mouth ! I added some carrots and mushrooms and like Margie, I added chicken broth. I used fresh potatoes instead of canned.

When I make pork chops or sausage and potatoes, I always warm up some sauerkraut and mix them all together with a little butter on top. No one else in my house will have anything to do with it because of the sauerkraut, but I love it. SO I knew I would love this recipe. I made it just for myself. I do think that next time I will partially boil the potaoes first because they weren't soft enough for me but besides that, I loved this. Towards the end of cooking I put a few tablespoons of butter on top also. Since no one else would eat it I had dinner one night and lunch the rest of the week! Thanks for posting!

This was a good simple recipe. I do think that the kraut overpowered the potatoes, so next time instead I will keep them seperate until serving them. Thanks for sharing!
