I sampled this recipe at a 25th anniversary party and was told it was a family favorite, courtesy of a Polish grandmother. I shared the recipe with my sister-in-law’s family and she told me her five-year-old son loved it so much that he would eat it cold for breakfast! Every time our family gathers now, someone brings this dish.


  • 2 cups uncooked egg noodles
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained


  1. Cook noodles according to package directions; drain.
  2. In a small skillet, melt butter. Add onion; saute until tender. Add noodles and sauerkraut; cook and stir over medium heat for 2 minutes. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
