Oh my my my!!! This was to die for. I've had the recipe saved in my cookbook forever and finally found the right time to make it - best served on cold, rainy or snowy days indoors! :) As long as you LOVE sauerkraut and you're not too worried about the caloric intake, this recipe is for YOU! It was very thick and hearty. Me & the DH like a good thick chowder, but if you don't, you may have to add extra water or milk. Thanks Jaimelee for a fabulous recipe!! Great for us Czech/Germans, heh :)
Pretty darn good! Used left over pork and sauerkraut and it was awesome, DH asked that it be added to menu wheel.
Everyone is right to rave about this recipe. Made it with low-fat cream cheese, evaporated skim milk and turkey kielbasa (I'm *trying* to be good!) and it was delicious!
Great soup! DH loved it and pretty much polished off the pot himself. I did add mustard as others have suggested. I'll be making this often, as per hubbys request. Thanks for posting!
This was ridiculously easy to make and one of the best soups i've ever made. I will definitely be making this one many many more times.
This was so easy and so fulfilling. I did make one change. I always have some sort of mustard whenever I have sausage, and this was no exception. I put about 1 1/2 TBL of dijon mustard into a soup bowl, then added a couple ladles of the chowder broth. I then mixed it well, then poured it back into the big pot of chowder. By mixing the small amount of mustard into a portion of the broth, it was easier to incorporate it into the whole pot of chowder.
I made a pot for myself and I've been eating it all week! I LOVE it! I did not use kielbasa and I was little afraid it might be bland without it, but NO! I really didn't have to add much salt & pepper either. I also added 1/4 - 1/2 tsp baking soda which keeps the dairy from separating. I'm not sure if that would happen with this recipe, but it seemed like it might. Just add a green salad and maybe some good bread, and you have a fabulous meal! Thanks, I WILL make this again!
This is a very good, very hearty soup. I would make sure the sausage is a good smoky style sausage, or even ham would work. I was afraid the sour flavor would be off putting, but it tasted wonderful. This one goes into my cookbook, just a wonderful winter soup.
This sounded so weird I had to try it and I'm glad I did! My whole family loved it!! I made it low fat by using light cream cheese, Fat Free evaporated milk and Turkey Kielbasa. I doubled everything except the Kielbasa and it was perfect for us and made a ton! I had enough to give my Mom some and she loved it too! We will be making this all winter! Thanks so much for a great new recipe!!
This is very good!
