Bratwurst Casserole - Meal in One
75 mins (prep 15, cooking 60)
14 ingredients
2-3 servings
Johnsonville Brats were on sale and I love them so I opened my cupboard doors and out came this recipe. I Challenge those of you that do not like Sauerkraut to try this recipe - I'll bet you'll say" Hey that ole Kraut isn't half bad!". This is easy to make, very little preparation and the bake time is 45 minutes where you can be doing other things. A small green salad will go well along side
