This is in the crockpot right now...can't wait till supper time! The only thing I did different was added a bit of caraway seed. Oh wait, reading down I see someone suggest adding a few carrots...gotta go!

This is really good and easy. I added extra sauerkraut and it was fantastic. Otherwise, kept everything else the same and the family loved it.

Simple to prepare and so delicious! I love sauerkraut so I add extra and don't rinse it in order to get a tangier flavor. I add extra bacon as well. A terrific main dish on it's own, leftovers can be used as a side dish. This is a wonderful, hearty one dish meal that's excellent in the fall and winter.

I found this very easy to put together, not too expensive to make. No leftovers :( Well I guess I'll have to make this again! In the recipe box it goes.

This is just the type of food to make my hubby glad to come home. I am going to add some carrot chunks next time just to play a little. I made it with my homemade kraut so I doubled the recipe from the soup down since my kraut is in quart cans. Worked great. Thank you to the author!
