This is a wonderful recipe I learned while in college. Serve with a nice crusty bread. You can make this on the stove or in a slow cooker, whichever one fits your lifestyle. Just make sure you have a 4 quart size slow cooker. Note: to make this soup less fattening omit the cream of chicken soup and one of the cans of water.

Very good! I am happily surprized by this soup. I didn't crock-pot this but made it in a dutch oven. Browned sausage first, drained it, wiped out most of grease from the oven. Added the onions, carrots, and mushrooms. Let them cook til onions were clear. Added 3 diced yukon gold potatoes, kraut, broth. Didn't have cream of soups, but didn't miss them at all. Added a bit of oregano instead of dill, as that's what was on hand and extra garlic. Makes a lot, so we'll be freezing at least half. Thanks for the great recipe. Will be making again!!


This soup is just so good! I love making homemade soups and using the crock pot! I took the advise of other cooks and added chicken and sour cream. I also used fresh potatoes and carrots.I really enjoy making unique dishes and this one is a keeper! So nice to come home to this great soup that is perfect for a cold winter in PA! I served this with dilled Havarti cheese and warm bread.


I have made this soup numerous times and it's one of my family's favorite meals. They ask for it weekly! It's especially good during the cold winter months as it is very rich and filling. I made it the first time as written, and have since made the following changes. I only gave it four stars because I think it's much better with fresh vegetables instead of canned. I used three yukon gold potatoes (peeled and cubed) five or six carrots (peeled and coined) about 1 1/2 TBS dried dill weed, a 32 oz. jar of sauerkraut with the juice, and a little extra chicken broth. Also, I leave out the garlic. With these changes it's a fantastic meal if you're a sauerkraut lover! It really reminds me of the sauerkraut soup at the Polish restaurant in my hometown.
