Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large casserole dish with a lid, layer the ingredients in this order - 3 dabs of butter, potatoes, onions, sauerkraut, salt and pepper, sausage.
  3. You can half everything and make two "stacks" of layers as well, if you prefer. Make sure you end with sausage on top.
  4. Push ingredients down, if necessary, to compress and fit into your dish.
  5. Bake until the potatoes are tender - I usually go for an hour and fifteen minutes for perfect potato tenderness for my family.
  6. Remove from the oven and serve.
  7. This dish is wonderful with home-made bread.

I haven't had ring bologna in ages, so this recipe got me craving it. I made half the recipe with the bologna and followed the directions. It was excellent, and thanks for the homemade bread suggestion. Truly a comfort meal and the leftovers were even better. This is a keeper Kitcharen! Made and enjoyed for PAC Spring '09.

I precooked my sliced unpeeled potatoes with skins in microwave on my potatoe setting even though I had then sliced in a dish with 1/4 cup of water. Undercooked potatoes in my home don't go over well. I doubled the butter for the bottom because I know it is not healthier but because it adds great moister to potatoes and I didn't want this dish to be dry. I sliced my onions with my P C slicer getting the onions bare thin which I believe had a impact on the success of the dish. I use venison/beef bologna. I also added a "beefed up" fresh ground pepper to dish. I was very impressed at quickness, ease with kids helping and then the taste. I put on a dollap of sour cream on my serving. Great - 5 stars

This was an easy, tasty meal. I used kielbasa. I wasnt sure if I was supposed to drain the sauerkraut, so I only drained about half the liquid. It turned out great. I had to cook mine about 1-1/2 hours for the potatoes to be done. Thanks, Kitcharen for a good meal. Sue
