Knoephla, Kraut and Sausage
This German inspired recipe is great for a quick meal! For a paleo version, use Almond Flour instead of All-Purpose Flour.
  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • Servings: 6


  • (2 pkgs) Beef Smoked Sausage
  • (32 oz) Sauerkraut - your preferred brand
  • (3 1/4 cups) All-purpose Flour, plus more for dusting
  • (1 1/2 tsp) Baking Powder
  • (1 1/4 tsp) Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • (1 cup) Water
  • (1, large) Free-Range Eggs


For the knoepla (if making homemade, otherwise follow cooking instructions on package)

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and a few turns of black pepper

Stir in the water and egg

Mix to form a shaggy dough

Turn it out onto a clean work surface and knead it for a few minutes, adding flour as needed until you have a smooth and stiff dough

Roll it into 1/2" thick rope, cut it into 1/2"-3/4" pieces

Bring a pot of water to a rolling boil and add salt

Drop dough pieces into boil water. Reduce head and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes. 

For the main dish:

Cut the ring sausage into 3/4 inch thick coins

Heat a little olive oil in a large frying pan, add the sausage and fry until they're a little browned on the outside

Add sauerkraut and knoephla and heat until warmed through and flavors have blended together
