Oklahoma Comfort Food: Brats, Cabbage and Green Bean Casserole

Oklahoma Comfort Food: Brats, Cabbage and Green Bean Casserole


"This unusual combination of ingredients in a pot came to us through a friend by way of her mother. Our friend's mom takes food to families who have suffered a death in the family. They take all sorts of things but this always goes first. It is tasty. She uses kielbasa but we use brats. We also use Splenda instead of sugar. It freezes and reheats well."

Very tasty. I did add a little garlic as well.

My Husband and I loved this recipe. He took leftovers to work and his friends loved it too.

Loved this!! The only thing I changed is instead of splenda, I used brown sugar (about a tablespoon of it.) This will be made again.
