Sauerkraut Hot Dish

We often serve this hearty dish at family gatherings, and the men especially seem to enjoy it. My sister gave me the recipe about 15 years ago. It’s been a favorite ever since. The unusual blend of ingredients is a pleasant surprise. —Nedra Parker, Dunbar, Wisconsin

    My mother made a version of this and I have made it over the years. She didn't include celery or the additional mushrooms, just the mushroom soup but it was delicious. I generally am the only one in my family of 2 that will eat it because my spouse doesn't like sauer kraut so I do not make it that often so I sometimes crave this dish.

    I have not made this dish yet but the addition of sauted red bell pepper or even a drained jar of diced pimientos would give that pop of color. The idea of rice sounds more like the version I will do bug great base recipe. My crazy family does not like mushrooms like I LOVE mushrooms. lol.

    Tasty recipe, but visually unappealing. Very, very beige! Given the ingredients, not sure what can improve how it looks. Because, as they say, you eat with your eyes.

    This is so yummy! We only baked it for 1 hour (stirring after 30 minutes) and it was perfect.~ Theresa

    Substitute wild and white (or brown rice) rice for the noodles. Yum!
