German Sausage, Potato, & Sauerkraut Soup

Here's a little throwback to Soup Season (although you can make soup anytime of year)! I may have to make this again soon!

German Sausage, Potato, & Sauerkraut Soup


  • 4 tablespoons of butter

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 1/4 cup of flour

  • 1 1/2 cup of chicken broth

  • 2 1/2 cup of milk

  • 12 oz. Polska kielbasa, sliced & halved

  • 1 1/2 cup potatoes, chopped

  • 1 cup of sauerkraut (you could use more or less)

  • 1 cup cheddar cheese

  • 1/2 teaspoon of dried basil


  1. Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat.

  2. Add onions and sauté until tender.

  3. Add flour, stirring until onions are completely coated, then let cook for 1 minute. Add chicken broth and milk.

  4. Turn heat to medium high and stir until it thickens.

  5. Reduce heat to medium. Add kielbasa, potatoes, sauerkraut, and basil. Simmer for 5 minutes. Add cheese.

  6. Add cheese and stir to combine. Then remove from heat.

  7. Optional: Serve with a sprinkle of black pepper on top.

  8. Enjoy!


**Unfortunately at the time I made this recipe I did not gather the nutrition information. When I make this recipe again I will update this post!

Note: You can also lightened this recipe up by using skim milk, low sodium chicken broth, and fat free cheddar cheese.
