      MMMmmm MMmmm good! I cut the recipe in half and it was just fine.Got everything ready in the AM put it in a casserole dish and baked it covered in a 350 oven for 45 minutes. I had added all the ingredients step by step including the apples in before baking - took off the cover for the last 20 minutes. This recipe has given me an idea for another version that I may try in the future and if it works Sue of course I will credit this one for the inspiration!! Thanks for another great meal

      Another great recipe! I think that next time though, I will skip the potatos and serve it over mashed potatos instead. Great flavor with the apples and kraut. I'll be keeping this one around.
