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.
