Reviews for Sauerkraut Mashed Potatoes
"I didn't care for this at all, taste and texture were not at all what I had wanted."
"This was delicious. I made the recipe exactly to order. I will be making this for a Thanksgiving side dish. I will probably add sour cream and a little more salt. I will try to make it with actual potatoes too. Thanks for sharing this recipe. My husband LOVES it and our teenager and two year old actually ate it all up."
"Had a version of this when visiting the Netherlands. They served with knockwurst (aka ring bologna).This is a great quick version if you do not have time for fresh mashed potatoes.Have served this with grilled bratwurst.Great side."
"I was searching for a recipe to use some sauerkraut I had been given this past fall and thought this one looked very yummy! I tried it tonight and it was fantastic!! I did change things a bit, like all home cooks will. I used fresh mashed potatoes and added about 1/4 cup of butter and 1/4 cup of sour cream when mashing them. I also added the bacon with the sauerkraut when mixing into the mashed potatoes. I didn't use onions. Super Delish and I will make it again!! Thanks for the idea!! :)"
