Brat ‘n’ Tot Bake

"Our town is dubbed the bratwurst capital of America," writes Jodi Gobrecht of Bucyrus, Ohio. "As a volunteer at our annual Bratwurst Festival, I could not have someone in my family who disliked bratwurst, so I developed this cheesy casserole for our son. It's the only way he will eat them."

    My husband and I love this recipe; favorite of my friends as well. I have used jalapeño cheese brats/sausage and it adds a tasty element.

    The bratwurst adds a nice change of pace to a potato casserole. I use lite sour cream and it was still delicious. I forgot and stirred the sour cream in with the soup mixture, but it was still tasty.

    I would make this with chicken not brats. Not a big fan of brats unless they are grilled. I took a chance using them but should've went with my gut feeling. I used Johnsonville brats. They were so greasy. I didn't the amount of sour cream in the recipe, used less. I put the tater tots on top so the could crisp up. All in all it was ok. I will prolly tweak the recipe to fit our taste.

    Really good! I used 1 cup of sour cream instead of two. I also didn't have tater tots on hand, so I substituted hash browns. This would make a good breakfast dish, too.

    Yummy! I didn't have bratwurst so I used sweet Italian sausage crumbled and cooked with the onions.Next time I will try layering the sour cream and cheese under the tater tots to see if they will crisp up better.Thanks for a delicious easy recipe!

    Very good for a tater tot recipe. My husband just raved about it! We're not big fans of hot sour cream so I leave it off and just put it on at the end on each serving. Works out really well!
