Recipes Using Sauerkraut

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.

I had leftover sauerkraut, which I had no idea what to do with. I also had a leftover baked potato, so I decided to combine them into something completely new.

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.

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.

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.

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. 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.

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