This recipe was great! It combines two of my favorite foods, sauerkraut and kielbasa. I used instant mashed potatoes because I was in a hurry but I think they detracted from the dish. Next time I will use garlic smashed red potatoes instead. Thanks Diana!

Thank You Diana for replying to my request for this recipe. Do not know how you did it so fast. I have sent Hubbys Uncle a copy. Now I had to try it. I must say it is supper easy and a great taste. I sliced up sausage on top. Next time I will use bulk sausage I bought enough for two recipes.

Comfort food!! Yes!! I used smoked porkchops instead of the sausage and put them in between the patatoe/Sauerkaut layers, smeared some mustard on the chops. I nearly didn't put on the cheese but decided to and it made the dish super special. Thanks Di for a great Winter night dinner

This was FANTASTIC! I'm not a real big saurdraut fan, so I was a little skeptical about this one. I was blown away by the flavor. I used bulk pork sausage with this one. I also forgot to rinse the saurkraut and took it straight from the can. When I took the first bite, I thought it might be too sauerkraut-ish, but as soon as I started chewing, the salty flavor of the sausage, combined with the cheese and the smooth potatos made for a wonderful combination! My sister even loved it so much, she came over for the next 2-3 days and ate up all the leftovers! lol This one's going to my files for sure!

This has a really great flavor- I love kielbasa and cheese, and sauerkraut, and usually have mashed potatoes with, so here is a casserole that does it all. This is so easy to make, I can't say enough about it for those days when I don't feel much like cooking- just into the pan and into the oven. Great recipe, thanks for posting!

We love all the ingredients in this recipe; tastes even better combined in this casserole! DH woke up hungry and was ready for dinner and I had the ingredients on hand: I used 1 lb keilbasa (no pork sausage), instant mashed potatoes, canned sauerkraut and fresh ground pepper, along with the cheese. Delicious! Thanks for posting. :)

Made this for the work guys. They loved it. Thanks for the post! Used Monterey Jack and ran it under the broiler for a very few minutes. Nice color & taste.

This recipe was fantastic. I did do things a little differently. I only used 1/2 the required amount of saurkraut and used a small head of cabbage in the recipe I had in the fridge that needed to be used up. I simply cooked the shredded cabbage in the skillet with the sliced sausage in a little beer till tender then layered the dish with the potatos and cheese ending on top. We loved it, very yummy.

Very good. I used a light turkey smoked sausage/kielbasa. I also layered the kielbasa in the middle, not just on top. Comfort food at it's best.

Deeeelicious! I used a Hengstenburg Bavarian Style Sauerkraut in a jar, which isn't quite so tangy. :)
