Reviews for Tater Brat Bake
"We love this dish! Usually substitute chicken brats & forgo the beer/butter frying (I prefer drinking my beers). It's a nice comfort food dish, perfect for football Sundays."
"We LOVED this recipe! We used cheddar venison brats instead and it was very good!!"
"Yum! Will definitely make this again. I did not rinse the sauerkraut, just drained it. It really has a lot of flavor in each bite."
"Awesome! Not a big fan of traditional tater tot casseroles but this one is wonderful especially with my Dad's homemade kraut!"
"Simple to make - very good. I've made this several times already - also added onion when simmering the brats."
