Sauerkraut Sausage Soup Recipe

“My husband and I make our own sauerkraut and grow many of the vegetables in this easy slow cooker soup,” relates Yvonne Kett of Appleton, Wisconsin. “It cooks all day and smells delicious when we come home from work. I usually assemble this the night before and put it in the fridge. Then I take it out and pop it in the slow cooker just before I leave for work in the morning.”

"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!"

"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."
