This is a very easy, good dish and reminds my husband of food he used to eat as a child in Detroit. I've made it three or so times always with chicken Kielbasa and good results. It is important to buy young, good potatoes, boil them gently and make sure to not overcook them; they won't be good if they are not firm. The watercress really makes the recipe work.
Wine-Glazed Sausages with Watercress Potatoes and Sauerkraut

Saurkraut was very good, sausages were just okay - I couldn't see a difference between cooking them in the wine and the way I normally pan fry them with just oil. The potatoes were downright gross. After being boiled for 15 minutes they literally fell apart (didn't stay in nice cubes like the photo). And 1/2 cup of reserved cooking water was WAY too much. They were so watery and unappealing to look at. I would rather have roasted potatoes or regular mashed potatoes anyday.
