Why is everyone wondering why someone would rinse sauerkaut? Some people have to watch their salt intake because of high blood pressure. Please kind to these people. It's not always easy to reduce your sodium intake.

I love anything with sauerkraut and the flavor of sausage was a great combo. I didn't rinse the kraut.

We're Czech, not sure why it's called "Polish", either, but who cares? Definitely don't drain the sauerkraut, use as much dijon as you like (!), and do the sour cream thing. Good base recipe, make it your own! Liked it.

This is called Lazy Pierogi (except I don't know anyone who makes it using swiss cheese or adds dijon mustard). Being married into a polish family, this is always a very standard dish at family gatherings. And I do agree with doxymama, you don't rinse the sauerkraut. Drain it, yes you can do that. But to rinse it, you really might as well just add cooked cabbage. And when I make it I use the family size can of cream of mushroom soup but I also add fresh sauteed mushrooms to the dish.

Made this for my husband and I. I was a little skeptical but it was very good! The Swiss Cheese really marries it all together!
