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.

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.
Brown pork bones and spareribs in a large heavy pot and simmer in water 1 hour.
Add the sauerkraut (washed and drained). Chop the cabbage finely and add to sauerkraut with bay leaves. Add pepper and salt cover and simmer for 1 hour more. Remove lid and keep pot on a very low simmer.
In a pan, fry bacon until crisp, then crumble into sauerkraut mixture. Drain most of the bacon fat and fry sliced onions and mushrooms and flour until they just brown. Add into sauerkraut mixture with caraway seeds (if used). Cut sausage into slices and add to sauerkraut mixture with the tomatoes.
Bring to a boil, simmer 30 minutes and serve hot with rye or crusty bread and/or mashed potatoes.

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.
This is a great soup that even most people who do not like sauerkraut will like!
This is a sauerkraut lovers' dream!
If you like sauerkraut, you'll love this salad. One of my sister in-law's favorites!
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.

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.

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. You can use minced garlic but add 5 minutes before heat is cut off.
