Luxie Sauerkraut Soup

Luxie Sauerkraut Soup

Posted by Karla Powell on 12th Oct 2020

Looking for a hearty pot of soup?  Give this idea a try.  It's a creamy blend of potatoes, sauerkraut, and our Luxemburg Sausage (1)  Just perfect for those blustery days.

Makes approximately 10 cups


4 tbsp butter (salted or unsalted) I prefer unsalted

1 medium onion, chopped

1/4 cup flour

1 1/2 cup chicken or vegetable broth

2 1/2 cup milk (I used 1%)

1 1/2 cup potatoes, cooked & diced  (I like to leave skins on)

12 oz Luxemburg Sausage, cut into bite sized pieces 

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1/2 tsp parsley, dried

1 dash pepper, black

1 cup sauerkraut, drained


In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.  Add onions and sauté until tender.

Add flour, stirring until completely blended. Cook on low heat for about a minute, then stir in broth and milk.

Increase heat to medium and cook stirring often until broth begins to thicken.

Reduce heat and add Luxemburg sausage, potatoes, and sauerkraut. Simmer for about 5 minutes.

Stir in cheddar cheese.  Remove from heat and serve.

Garnish with a dash of black pepper and parsley.
