Marko’s Sausage & Kraut Comfort Food Casserole
Makes 4-6 Servings
So good, so easy, so hearty. This casserole is perfect for a drizzly (or snowy) weeknight.
- 1-2 pats of Butter, or a quick glug of Oil
- 1 lb. Yukon Gold Potatoes
- 1 Medium Yellow Onion
- 1lb. Raw Sausages (we used Mangalitsa pork Beer Bratwurst sausage)
- 1 Jar (16 oz) Horseradish Leek Kraut (or another Midori Farm Kraut flavor)
- Salt & Pepper
Preheat your oven to 350° F.
Butter or lightly oil the bottom and sides of a 9” x 13” oven-proof baking pan or casserole dish.
Peel and chop the potatoes, aiming for fairly uniform bite-sized pieces. Quarter and then slice the onion into short strips around ½” wide. Toss the potatoes and onions together in the baking dish, and season with salt and pepper.
Slice the bratwurst into inch-thick coins, and scatter them in the baking dish on top of the potato-and-onion layer.
Spoon kraut evenly over the sausage layer.
Cover the baking dish with foil and pop it into the oven. After around 40 minutes, remove the foil and cook it uncovered for another 20-25 minutes.
Peek in to assess the situation – is it bubbling happily away, and have the potatoes and onions browned nicely? As soon as that happens, pull it from the oven and dig in.
