This is so delicious. Three of us polished it off in minutes. The mashed potatoes and sauerkraut combination is wonderful and the kielbasa is unbelievably tender. The only change I'd make is to use twice as much kielbasa next time.

This was really good. I might put a little caraway seed in next time only because our family thinks sauerkraut has to have caraway seed :D.

I'll be straight up: I don't eat much in the way of potatoes and sauerkraut belongs on a hot dog. (Ooops! My Archie Bunker is showing!) But because I was involved in a Dutch-themed dinner party, and this came from someone from Holland, I figured I'd give it a go. THIS WAS FANTASTIC! I got several requests for the recipe and my husband LOVED IT!! The serving bowl was literally scraped clean! Thank you TammieV
