Try It You'll Like It Kraut Casserole


This is a very mild sauerkraut recipe. It actually doesn't taste much like sauerkraut or I wouldn't like it. It took me 2 years to finally decide to give it a try and boy was it worth it! It is low calorie with vegetables and apple - an interesting blend of flavors. Serve with baked or mashed potatoes.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
