Reviews for Polish Casserole
"My "across-the-street" neighbor, Carolee, made this casserole and shared it with us. She made it with whole wheat pasta and smoked turkey sausage. The combination of the sauerkraut and cream of mushroom soup was surprisingly delicious! And the smoked sausage added just the right amount of smokiness. I'm definitely going to make this myself .... using the exact ingredients called for. 5 stars for sure!!"
"Wow! Not what I expected! This is for sure in the rotation! Thanks!"
"your website for tablets suck unable to print recipe"
"Excellent. My favorite casserole!!"
"This is similar to a recipe I have made which I love. It used ham rather than Polish sausage (although I really like the idea of the Polish sausage) and put buttered rye bread on top. It uses layers with the sauerkraut being the middle layer, but I'm going to try mixing together, easier! I don't rinse the sauerkraut, just drain it."
"Our family really liked this. We used Polish kielbasa, which I didn't have to brown - just sliced it and added it. The Dijon, garlic, sauerkraut and kielbasa make for a flavorful dish. I only had Swiss cheese slices; i just spread them on top and they worked fine."
"This was absolutely wonderful! I love that I could freeze one and that turned out just as the first. I don't know why anyone would rinse sauerkraut. Kind of defeats the purpose. This is a regular on our menu. I sliced and browned the sausage- it gave it a wonderful flavor. Didn't use mustard as I am not a fan."
"I made this recipe because my husband likes sauerkraut and sausage. My husband liked it ok, it wasn't a hit but it wasn't bad either. He said it didn't have a strong enough sauerkraut flavor. I don't know if I'll make it again, but if I do, I won't rinse the sauerkraut."
