  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Cook bratwurst in a skillet over medium-high heat just until nicely browned on the outside.
  2. Spread sauerkraut in the bottom of a 9x11 casserole dish, leaving a 2 inch margin at the edges. Sprinkle celery salt and brown sugar over the sauerkraut. Place the sausages on top. Pour the beans around the outer edge of the sauerkraut. Cover the dish with a lid or aluminum foil.
  3. Bake for about 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until bratwurst links are cooked through.

I'm giving this 4 stars because it is so quick, easy, inexpensive, and uses things that I always have on hand. It really isn't anything spectacular, but it did the job. Thanks!
