Milkmaid's Recipe Box

FOOD, FOOD, FOOD! I'm such a FARMER at heart-- even a CALF knows that so much in life is about the FOOD! (A bit of a "bio" about me can be found way down near the bottom.)

You can find a recipe index entitled "Labels" down along the right side, starting below the picture of the farm. Then, below the "Label" list are pictures of some of my old "standbys"-- click on their picture and it should take you to the recipe.

You will see no advertising on my blog; this means there is no monetary benefit for me having "visitors" or "joiners"-- having said that, if you do wish to JOIN my blog, you can do so by scrolling w-a-y down to near the bottom of the page...

Sauerkraut Casserole

The recipe for this casserole is similar to the casserole Janice Schmidt takes to most (if not all) pot luck meals at church.  Janice prepares/bakes hers and then puts it into a crock pot to keep it warm.  It is always a HIT!

You will need to have some cooked rice on hand, or cook it up before you begin the recipe. (I like doubling this recipe because I LIKE sauerkraut and want left-overs.)

Grease/spray a 9x13-inch baking dish.


  • 1 cup raw rice (cooked ahead according to directions).
  • 2 lb. lean ground beef, browned and drained.
  • 1 packet dry onion soup.
  • 2  of 10.75 oz. cans  cream of mushroom soup.
  • 1 cup water.
  • 1 large can of sauerkraut (up to 1 quart), drained.  IF you decide to also rinse it, run water over it very briefly/quickly.  If you rinse it for too long, you will eliminate too much of the flavor of the sauerkraut.
  • A sprinkling of French fried onions for the top, just before baking.  (Optional)


  • Cook the 1 cup of rice and set aside.
  • Brown hamburger and add dry onion soup powder-- mix well and set aside. 
  • Combine cooked rice, cream of mushroom soup, water.  Add this to the meat/onion mixture.   Add the sauerkraut.  Blend well.
  • Spread into greased 9x13 baking dish.  Sprinkle French fried onions on top, optional.
  • Bake in 350-degree oven for about 1 hour.
