"Very good, easy dinner. I added a few extra potatoes and some leftover smoked ham I had in the fridge. I also added about half a teaspoon of caraway seeds. A good recipe to alter to your tastes."

"This was more delicious than I expected it to be! I boiled the potatoes the day before so I could make this in less time. My sauerkraut came in a jar and was imported from Germany; I did not rinse it and I did not add salt. Good stuff!"

"This was pretty good! Did everything in an aluminum pan on the grill so we didn't heat up our little house. Started with the sliced onions, potatoes, olive oil and salt and pepper. Let that go for 15-20 minutes on low. Then added the sauerkraut and sausage and cooked everything til the potatoes were done."

"I loved this recipe. I used a can of the Silver Fleece and it was great. The only inaccurancy is the length of time for cooking the potatoes. It was actually much longer than called for, but worth it in the end."
