My family LOVED this recipe! I made it with sour cream and without rinsing the sauerkraut (as suggested by other reviewers) and it was delicious! Such a simple tasty and satisfying casserole. Thanks so much for posting it! I will definitely be making this again. Read More

Amazing! Perfect comfort food!! I took someone's suggestion and used sour cream although I'm sure it'd be just as great with regular cream. I'm about to go for my third helping--I just wanted to get this review in ASAP because I'm so excited about it! Read More

The first words out of my boyfriend after he tried this were "This is AWESOME!" He's the pickiest person EVER and my jaw dropped by his reaction over this. I used red-skinned potatoes..don't know if that made a difference. And I didn't rinse the sauerkraut. There was a nice juice on the bottom of the pan from it after it cooked. I used a bit more butter and some garlic powder also. Delicious. And very easy! Read More

I used russet potatoes omitted the butter and used bulk turkey sausage. I'm so used to cooking with onions that I added a chopped one to the meat as I cooked it! This is a great new Shepard's Pie for me! The nutmeg is a great seasoning for this dish! Read More

We loved this. I used sour cream instead of cream and it gave this even more flavor. Next time I'll probably add more potato too. Read More

This is pretty good and very easy to make (except for the potatoes part). I used a 9x13 casserole dish and that seemed to be perfect. The sauerkraut kind of got lost in the taste and consistency of the potatoes so next time I think I will only drain it and not rinse it and may add a little more kraut. Read More

So all I did was cut up and cook the kielbasa with the sour kraut and some noodles then added sour cream and milk and cayenne pepper and it was really really good! I dunno if this qualifies as the same recipe even but that's all I had to work with. My hubby really liked it... Read More

I'm totally changing my review! I made this without draining the sauerkraut and with draining/rinsing the sauerkraut and I liked it the best without draining! At first I thought the opposite because it was a little tangyier than I would prefer it but if you drain and rinse the sauerkraut it misses alot of flavor. So I'm giving this 4 stars... Still liked it alot though! Read More

This has officially become one of my all-time favorite recipes! This is some of the best comfort food EVER! I didn't follow the portion of the recipe regarding the potatoes because I make mashed potatoes the way my mom makes them (no recipe just wing it until it tastes the way you want). I also added a can of cream of mushroom/celery soup on top of the kielbasa. And I agree the kraut gets lost so I also doubled the kraut. LOVE IT!!! Thank you so much for sharing! Read More
