  • Polish Reuben Casserole

    THIS SOUNDS GOOD, KIND OF A VARIATION OF SAUERKRAUT HOTDISH.

    POLISH REUBEN CASSEROLE

    1 medium onion, diced
    2 (16 oz.) cans sauerkraut
    2 cans cream of mushroom soup
    1 1/3 c. milk
    1 T. prepared mustard
    1 (8 oz.) package medium width noodles
    1½ lb. Polish sausage, cut in 1/2 inch pieces
    2 c. shredded swiss cheese
    3/4 c. whole wheat bread crumbs
    2 T. butter, melted

    Preheat oven to 350°. Grease (13 x 9 inch) pan. Place kraut in a colander in the sink and rinse with cold water; press to drain. Combine onion, soup, milk and mustard in a medium bowl; blend well. Spread the sauerkraut in the prepared pan. Top with the uncooked noodles. Pour the soup mixture evenly over the noodles. Top with the sausage and the cheese. Combine the crumbs and the butter and sprinkle on top. Cover tightly with foil and bake one hour or till the noodles are tender.

    NOTE: If you add a little caraway seed "to your taste" it is a nice flavor (about 1 T.). Just mix it in the soup mixture before spreading over the noodles. Also, you could substitute corned beef for the Kielbasa sausage. (This corned beef substitute is what most of our callers say they have done).

    CASSEROLE TIPS:

    Try 3 T. of Thousand Island dressing mixed into the cream of mushroom soup.
    Try the "cream of mushroom with roasted garlic" soup in place of the mushroom.
    Add pearl onions to the recipe!


    1.) Use browned cubed boneless chicken breasts or chicken strips for the meat.
    2.) Substitute shredded cabbage for the sauerkraut.
    3.) You may substitute chicken broth for the milk.
    4.) Try potato spaetzle instead of noodles.

    IF THE CASSEROLE COMES OUT DRY:

    1.) Make sure the casserole is very tightly covered.
    2.) Reduce the amount of noodles used by 1 oz. or so.
    3.) Drizzle water, chicken broth or 1000 island dressing over the casserole.

    How about using rye instead of the wheat bread?
