"This was amazing and perfect for our potluck at work! I used light sour cream and light cream cheese and it was still delicious. Took others advice and didn't rinse sauerkraut and added a splash of thousand island dressing. Served with rye bread and rye triscuits. Tasted just like eating a Reuben sandwich :)"

"Good taste, but wasn't very soft, the crackers would break when you tried to spread them. I think Thousand Island dressing would help with that problem & add more to the flavor."

"This is really good. I added1 heaping tbl of 1000 Island Dressing. I prefer Russian Dressing but always seem to get out voted. As others have said, DO NOT rinse Kraut. Served with small Jewish Rye Party bread slices."

"I tried this with rye bread and it just felt like something was missing - switched to whole grain chips and it was way better! I would recommend some thousand island dressing on the side."

"Rinsing sauerkraut gets rid of some of the "sauer". I bought kraut from our local community market, didn't rinse, and the sauerkraut flavor came through very nicely. Took to a party and served with rye Triscuits. Everyone loved it!"

"I made this for a St. Pat's party last night. Everyone loved it!! They ate it all! I served it with Melba toast and Wasa light rye crispbread. I had thousand island dressing on the side. The only thing I found weird with this recipe was the rinsing of the sauerkraut, i didn't actually rinse it, just drained it and pressed the excess water out. Very easy to make!"
