So very yummy for a departure of dogs & burgers the usual fare for Labor Day. All who have tasted it gave it high marks. I made it exactly as the recipe but.... made it in an Instant Pot instead of the crock pot. It cooked in eight minutes. The flavors are delicious and will definitely make it again in the IP. The prepping of the ingredients took a while but enjoyed all the fresh veggies which made it very satisfying. Am thinking of ideas to tweak it a bit next timer - perhaps meatballs instead of sausage. Thank you for this recipe. This is a keeper.

Delicious! I made this for a family dinner with pierogies and homemade rolls. I left out the mushrooms and substituted cream of celery for the cream of mushroom. Definitely a keeper!

Delicious! One of our favorite soups! I serve it topped with grated Swiss Cheese and rye croutons.

If you like sauerkraut, you will like this soup! Very tasty and one of our favorites. I try to reduce the sodium by purchasing the lower sodium mushroom soup and chicken broth. Rinsing the sauerkraut also reduces sodium. The only change I make is to omit the dill.

This is a favorite in our household. It's easy and tasty. My only concern is the high sodium content, which I think might improve if I used sodium-reduced broth and mushroom soup. The low carb content would make this a diabetic-friendly recipe. I think I'll also try to find a lower fat/lower sodium sausage next time.

Sorry, this one isn't that good. Won't make it again. The flavors just don't go well together.

I used smoked turkey sausage. It turned out very good.
