"Very good and oh, SO easy! I used frozen southern style hashbrowns in place of cubing my own potatoes. Thank you so much for this recipe!"

"Very good, easy dinner. I added a few extra potatoes and some leftover smoked ham I had in the fridge. I also added about half a teaspoon of caraway seeds. A good recipe to alter to your tastes."

"This was more delicious than I expected it to be! I boiled the potatoes the day before so I could make this in less time. My sauerkraut came in a jar and was imported from Germany; I did not rinse it and I did not add salt. Good stuff!"
