A true German/Polish dish that is simply 'Delish'! I sometimes use Swiss cheese in place of the Cheddar, which is a good switch as well! This is a casserole that is very inexpensive, simple and quick to make - and not to mention leftovers are the best the next day as well!!

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook kluski noodles in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain and set aside.

  • Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Whisk in flour, dry mustard, and black pepper; cook until smooth, about 2 minutes. Whisk in milk, a little at a time, and bring white sauce to a boil. Cook for 1 minute, whisking constantly, to make a smooth, thick sauce. Whisk 3/4 cup Cheddar cheese into sauce until melted.

  • Stir kluski noodles, sauerkraut, and kielbasa sausage into the sauce and transfer to a 3-quart casserole dish. Mix bread crumbs with 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese in a bowl and sprinkle over the casserole.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until casserole is heated through, about 20 minutes.

I felt this was rather bland and dry. If I make it again I will add more cheese sauce kraut and kielbasa maybe even use sharp cheddar. I was rather disappointed as I love all the ingredients. I had hoped it would have more flavor. Sorry just didn't do anything for me. Read More

I have made this recipe twice now but modifying the recipe and ingredients somewhat. The 1st time I made this I used about 8 oz. of regular wide noodles (not Kluski noodles though) and using 1-1/2 cups of sauerkraut (but used bavarian sauerkraut as that's what I had on hand) plus I added 1 teaspoon each of garlic powder and onion powder to the flour and other spices. The 2nd time I made this I used 7 oz. of wide noodles along with the 2 cups of sauerkraut plus the teaspoon each of garlic powder and onion powder to the flour and other spices. Fixed both ways was good but while I preferred the less sauerkraut and 8 oz. of noodles my husband prefered this dish with the 2 cups of kraut with the 7 ounces of noodles. Also... I prepared the sauce in a 3 quart saucepan and adding 1 cup of cheese to it then stirred in the cubed sausage and kraut and added it to a greased casserole baking dish plus stirred in the cooked noodles as well. Topped the casserole with a mixture of 4 tablespoons of plain dried bread crumbs mixed with 2 tablespoons of melted butter and baked it in the oven for 25 minutes. This made 6 delicious servings! If you love kraut you'll love this main dish! One more thing... instead of Kielbasa I used ECKRICH Skinless Smoked Sausage (a 14-oz. package). This is a great recipe! I could eat this at least once a month. Also this recipe definitely deserves more than 5 stars as that's how good it is. This recipe is definitely a keeper!! Read More

I used mild cheddar and may use sharp next time just to give it a little extra. I also used 2 cups of cheese and couldn't find the suggested noodles so used bucatini noodles. I mixed everything together in the caserole dish and popped it in the oven. Will definitely make again and again. Big hit with hubby & teenagers. Thanks for posting! Read More

Delicious! I used light velveeta in place of the cheddar b/c I have better luck w/ melting it. I also cooked the kielbasa a bit in a pan to get out any liquid and to just cook it through. I rinsed my sauerkraut b/c I don't care for a strong sour taste so I did need to add a bit of salt to compensate for that. This is serious comfort food and I will def be making it again YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

I used homemade spaezle instead of noodles for the pasta and it was a good substitution. I'm not sure how it will be heated up but it was worth trying. Read More
