Delicious, creamy soup that's great on a cold winter day. I got this recipe from friends in Hays, KS, a Volga German community filled with good cooks!

I made this because hubby loves rueben sandwiches so I figured he might like this. We both enjoyed it and it was nice to try something different. I really didn't know what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised with the results.

I made this simply because it was so unique. I had many people say they liked it, and a couple that thought it was o.k., thus my rating. I didn't try it, so the rating is based on others comments. A very easy recipe to throw together. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe.

This recipe sounded so strange I had to try it. It was much better then I expected but nothing I'd care to make again. If I were to make it again I think I'd use less sauerkraut.
