Dar's Super Savory Sauerkraut Potato Bake

"This dish has some of the flavors that I miss from my childhood in Germany. It is comfort food with a capital 'C.' I like to pair it with my own pork schnitzel or with baked chicken for a hearty dinner. This dish also includes a recipe for a creamy sauce that I use both in pot pies and as a substitute for condensed soups in many recipes. 'Guten Appetit!'"

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Whisk the flour, bouillon granules, water, and milk together in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil until thick, 1 to 2 minutes, whisking continuously. Remove from heat and stir the sour cream into the flour mixture; set aside to cool.
  3. Combine the onion, Cheddar cheese, sauerkraut, salt, pepper, and caraway seeds in a large mixing bowl. Stir the sour cream sauce and the melted butter into the sauerkraut mixture; fold the hash brown potatoes into the mixture. Pour into the prepared baking dish. Use a spatula to flatten into an even layer.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the potatoes are tender and the top is brown and bubbly, 60 to 70 minutes.

Fantabulous! I halved the recipe because I just wasn't sure how it would go over & I'm wishing I would've made the whole thing-it was GREAT! My 4 yr old had 3 helpings! I didn't use the optional...

wonderful and a crowd pleaser.

Delicious! The simple white sauce is so much tastier than using a cream of mushroom soup or something similar. I did add a bit more saurkraut as I wanted to use up the jar. Will definitely make ...

Fantastic!!! It is definitely "super savory". Very rich, creamy, cheesy... utterly delicious, and easy, too. My family gave it rave reviews. Thanks for the recipe, Dar! :-)

side dish only

I was so skeptical of this dish because I am NOT a saurkraut fan. The only thing I did differently was add more cheddar cheese than it called for. This came out bubbly, cheesy, and SO DELICIOUS...

This was FANTASTIC! My husband is Lithuanian, and LOVES sauerkraut, so I'm always on the lookout for recipes that include it. This was just incredibly good. I made it exactly as written, but ...

Almost any recipe with saurkraut gets 5 stars from me! This was really good! I put it on top of some ground pork & while the color of the dish is very bland - I really like it! Definitely DO N...

It seems odd that we didn't like this given the ingredients. The only changes were to shred four potatoes instead the pre-packaged hashabrowns (I only seen the shredded variety around here a han...
