A rich sauce coats this hearty combination of potatoes, carrots and bratwurst chunks. "I adapted a baked stew recipe that appeared in a newspaper," says Susan Holmes from Germantown, Wisconsin. "This is so comforting on cold winter evenings."

"This a great filling stew with lots of flavor! The only thing I did different was omit the water later in the recipe, and used regular milk, since I didn't have any 1/2 and 1/2 on hand. Mixed the cornstarch with that and it came out perfect! Definitely a keeper here!"
