This is the best sandwich I ever had and I hadn't had a good one since my husband passed away. He did all the cooking and so the taste of this was a real treat for me.

Total Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 1 whole sandwich or two 1/2 sized sandwich


  • 1 16 oz can Sauerkraut ($2.79)
  • Rye Bread ($4.50)
  • 1 pkg Provolone Cheese sliced ($1.99)
  • 1 pkg Swiss Cheese Sliced ($1.99)
  • Mustard ($2.99)
  • 1 stick Butter (1/2 cup) ($3.79)


  1. Make sandwich from rye bread with both provolone and Swiss cheeses over sauerkraut with a light spreading of mustard.
  2. Grill in pan over medium heat until each side is golden brown and cheese is melted and gooey.
  3. Slice sandwich down the middle and enjoy while hot.

This is a very easy recipe. If you like sauerkraut, you should love this. In Nova Scotia, we have a locally made delicious sauerkraut which I use that is made on Tancook Island.


  • 2 (32 oz.) jars sauerkraut, drained
  • 1 envelope dry onion soup mix
  • 3 Tbsp. brown mustard
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 3 lbs. boneless pork loin roast


Combine sauerkraut, soup mix, mustard, and water in crock pot. Add pork roast. Cover and cook on low.

I lost my recipe for making Sauerkraut Balls. It uses one can of SPAM and 1 can of corned beef in place of ham. Thank you.

Follow the directions to make the dressing, using real chicken broth and real butter. Mix in the undrained sauerkraut and sprinkle with sugar to cut the tartness of the kraut. Mix in the onions, celery, and sprinkle with sage to taste.

Hearty heart-warming comfort food. Can be cooked on the stove or in a slow-cooker. Serve with good rye bread. The secret of Bigos is that it gets better as it's reheated. The more it is heated the better it gets. Also a great make-ahead meal.

I'm not usually a fan of sauerkraut, but this is really very good! I like the combination of other ingredients. They blend well and make the taste of the sauerkraut not seem quite so strong.

Brown sausage slightly. Combine other ingredients, except cheese. Bake 2 hours or in crock pot 8 hours on low or 4 hours on high. The last 15 minutes add the cheese.

I have a 101 year old friend who passed this idea down to several generations. When she was a teenager, their basketball team got stranded in a snow storm in Iowa.

Quick and easy stew. My entire family loves it.


  • 1 lb. beef (or your choice of meat)
  • 1 medium size can ranch style beans
  • 2 cans whole corn
  • salt
  • pepper
  • garlic powder


Brown ground beef and drain (do not rinse), add ranch beans, corn, salt and pepper, garlic power (to taste) and let simmer for about 20 minutes. You can use minced garlic but add 5 minutes before heat is cut off.

Great as a salad, fun on a hot dog, with mustard or as a side dish to pork or any meat.


  • 1 16 oz. can sauerkraut drained and rinsed well.
  • 1 2 oz. jar pimiento, drained and cut into strips.
  • 1 large onion in rings (I use both white and red onions.)
  • 2 Tbsp. dried bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 3 Tbsp. oil


Blend oil, water, vinegar, and sugar. Arrange sauerkraut, peppers, and pimento in a bowl. Place onion rings on top. Pour dressing over.

Cover, refrigerate for several hours or overnight. Keeps for weeks.

Servings: 6 - 8
