Poor Man's Pierogies And Sausage

This is a very filling and tasty meal, cheap too!


  • 1 package of kielbasa or polish sausage (if you use fresh polish sausage, it will be a bit more expensive) $1.99 @ Aldis
  • Ad

  • 1 lb box of elbow macaroni - .99 @ Aldis
  • 1 can sauerkraut - .50 @ Aldis
  • 1 med. onion diced - (pennies)
  • 1 stick (1/4 lb.) of margarine - .25
  • 1 Tbsp. oil - (pennies)
  • salt and pepper to taste


Boil noodles to package directions. In a large fry pan, brown the sausage in the oil until lightly browned. Add margarine and diced onion and saute. Drain and rinse sauerkraut and add to the sausage and onion. Mix well. Drain noodles and add to pan. Salt and pepper to taste. Stir to mix and enjoy!

This makes a lot of food (6-8 servings) and costs about .50 per serving!

i cut the sausage up in pieces. (leave it in the casing). i've also made it with a can of sliced mushrooms too. you can add the mushrooms to the fry pan when you saute the onion.


you might need to add a bit more margarine tho if you add mushrooms. i know it sounds like alot of margarine, but you want to coat the noodle and sauerkraut mixture well enough so it's not dry, because it makes alot of food.
