Wonderful flavor - I made it with a smoked ham sausage (metwurst) and the flavor came through just right. Instead of sour cream I used 3/4cup 2% cottage cheese, whipped (It is lighter in calories and I find it does the trick). I found the dumplings a little heavy but perhaps it was the way I made them. The next time I make this recipe I will used cooked, riced potatoes and a slice of fresh bread finely crushed instead of the raw potatoes.Good way to use some left over potaoes Thanks Kevin for a tasty dish I really enjoyed it.
This is true comfort food. I wasn't sure what instantized flour is, so I used all-purpose. That may explain why the dumpling were heavy. I taste-tested the dumplings alone (before adding them to the kraut) and they were bland. But once the whole dish is together it is delicious. I probably used about 1/2 the sour cream the dish called for. I think it would be great even without the sour cream.
