Recipe by Bergy
This is an economical casserole that kids love. Don't be afraid of the sauerkraut taste it mellows out with the potatoes, sugar and mustard. Try it you'll love it.

This is an easy to make recipe, which rates high on my "comfort food" list. I added a few more hot dogs, and cut them into smaller pieces which distributed them more evenly throughout the dish. Next time, I'm going to substitute smoked bratwurst to jazz up the taste a little, but it's fine as is. I also think adding a few finely diced kosher dills would kick it up a bit. These changes might not be as acceptable to kids as they are to adults, but it's fun to experiment.
