Where I worked one time in a factory, we would have pot luck dinners for our co-workers' Birthdays & such. A lot of good recipes are made & shared at these. This is a recipe I got from a lady that brought this dish one time. She said it was from an old Amish cookbook. I then, a few years later put it in our cookbook that a few of us girls put together & had published & sold copies of. It was called "The Happy Cooker". I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Even if you don't like sauerkraut, give it a try. You won't taste the kraut.

1 lb
smoked ring sausage
1 large
onion, chopped
1/3 c
3 c
milk (+ or - )
1 c
cream or whipping cream
3 c
sauerkraut, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 Tbsp
lemon juice
pepper to taste
bacon grease



  • 1Slice smoked sausage into bite size slices and brown with onions in bacon grease. *Don't overcook, either browning or while cooking the soup. Remove sausage from pan. Save grease.
  • 2Have grease hot and add flour. Almost brown, as you would for gravy.
    Add cream and then milk. Allow to thicken, stirring constantly.
  • 3Next, add kraut, lemon juice and pepper to taste. May cook on stove or in a crock-pot. May also add more milk now if necessary. Cook about 30 minutes on low heat.
  • 4*I tried keeping some hot in a crock pot for a Soup Supper we were having in town & found out that the longer you heat this on a high heat, the sausage toughens up.
