This recipe has been in our family for over 50 years, and it's always been our favorite casserole! Now that our four children are grown and gone, I don't often make family-sized meals...but we still enjoy this casserole often, because it's so simple to prepare and reheats nicely.

"This was wonderful!!! The only change I made was using hot Italian pork sausage instead of the regular sausage. I didn't even add salt or pepper. My family and friends loved it! Thanks for sharing such a great recipe!"

"I tried this recipe last night and it was very bland. It might have been better if I added more spices to it but it wasn't bad."

"I added about 1/4 cup tomato sauce to prevent it from getting dried out in the oven. A more unusual casserole, but I had leftover sauerkraut to use. It tasted good, though my kids were not crazy about it."
