    The origins of this recipe are from Sauerkraut Soup II found on, adapted from the comments found in the reviews.

    Even the Mrs. who will not eat sauerkraut, finished of two bowls, and commented how tasty it was. The amount of dill weed combined with the kraut juice gives this soup a tart kick.

    Time: N/A
    Difficulty: Easy
    Serving Size: N/A

    1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup

    1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup

    4 cups chicken broth

    2 cups milk

    32 oz. jar of sauerkraut w/ juice

    1 onion, finely diced

    3 - 4 carrots (peeled and coined)

    3 -4 potatoes (peeled and cubed)

    1 pound smoked sausage of your choice, sliced

    1 1/2 TBS dried dill weed

    salt and pepper to taste

    1. In a 4 to 6 quart slow cooker, blend the cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, chicken broth, and milk. Stir in sauerkraut, onion, carrots, potatoes, and sausage. Season with dill.

    2. Cover, and cook on High for 4 hours, or Low for up to 8 hours, or till the potatoes and carrots are soft. Taste, and season with salt and pepper to your liking.

    Note: This will fill a 4 quart slow cooker to past the brim, I added an extra 1/2lb of kielbasa I had in the fridge, and had to transfer this to a 6 quart cooker.

    This will force me to buy a six-quart cooker and hit the grocery store. Sounds awesome, Bill. ;)

    Just want to be sure and add a note to this...

    While I was fine with the amount of dill that was in the soup, my wife and oldest son both asked me to cut back on it when I make it again.

    Of course that didn't stop my wife from eating another bowl of it for lunch today. :D

    I have some of this boiling away right now. You weren't kidding when you said it would fill a 4 quart cooker to the brim. It was so full that I had to ladle some off before I could finish putting the potato in :D

    Hmm. I do love sauerkraut, cut-up deer sausage, scrambled egg poured all over it and a bit of worcestershire sauce, all fried down in a skillet together.. but I don't know if I could stomach sauerkraut soup and I know my other half won't touch it. I think I'll cut the ingredients in half and try to make a batch just for me. It does seem very interesting.. and I do love the show Bizarre Foods. ha!
