    We enjoyed this very much.Did make some adjustments, however. I scaled the recipe to four servings and it made quite a bit; enough for 6 people. A couple of the reviews mentionned dryness so I cooked the noodles first. No problem with moisture. Instead of whole wheat bread, I used polish rye. I used the food processor since it is a hard bread and this worked well. I melted 2 tablespoons of butter in a skillet and then added the crumbs until butter was absorbed. I think the adjustments made a creamier, more flavorful dish.  -  01 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was absolutely delicious! It tasted just like a reuben sandwich. I had extra kielbasa, so I also increased the noodle amount slightly and added about 2 heaping tablespoons of sour cream to the soup/milk mixture. Warm, creamy and very comforting. I'll make it again for sure.  -  04 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe is fantastic! I did adjust a bit however, cooking the noodles first and using Rye Bread crumbs, and the results were great! A real crowd pleaser!  -  19 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
