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...

Polish Reuben Casserole

If you like sauerkraut, you will probably like this a lot-- if you don't,... you won't!  But,... the sauerkraut, being both drained and rinsed, is 'toned down' a bit.

Hungry for kraut, I made this for supper last night.  This recipe is 'around'-- it is also in the cookbook published by the women of the local Lutheran church-- this was submitted by Delores L.  I like to make this casserole at least a few times a year.  The italicized words in the ingredient list belong to me.
8-10 servings
  • 2 cans reduced-fat version of cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 and 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 1 large (29 oz.) can of sauerkraut, drained, rinsed and patted dry.  I think you could easily get away with using only one of the 15-oz. cans if you want a thinner layer of kraut in the bottom.
  • 8 oz. package  medium width egg noodles, uncooked
  • 1 pound Polish sausage (or lower fat Kielbasa), cut into 1/2" pieces
  • 2 cups (8 oz.) shredded Swiss cheese, OR 8 oz. pkg of Swiss cheese slices
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Combine soup, onion, milk and mustard in medium bowl; blend well. Set aside.
  • Spread drained, rinsed and patted-dry sauerkraut in greased 9x13" pan
  • Top with uncooked egg noodles. 
  • Spoon soup mixture evenly over noodle layer.
  • Top with cut sausage pieces, then the layer of cheese. 
  • Combine crumbs and butter in small bowl; sprinkle over top of cheese layer.
  •   Cover pan tightly with aluminum foil;
  • Bake at 350-degrees for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until noodles are tender (not rubbery).
