I used deer burger but otherwise followed the ingredients list. Instead of making this as a casserole I made it as a skillet dish. After browning the meat and onions I added the remaining ingredients with the exception of the noodles and cheese. I cooked the noodles then added them to the skillet stirring until the noodles were completely covered in sauce, then topped with cheese. It was delicious.

This goes in my keeper file! I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was but my kids and I just LOVED it! Who knew that adding sauerkraut to an otherwise normal casserole would make it so yummy? Thanks for a great recipe!

This received mixed reviews from my family...seemed the menfolk were bigger fans than the ladies on this one. This meal was simple and straightforward-- plus, it made perfect use of some canned sauerkraut I had hiding in my pantry! Next time, I would try the suggestion of *Parsley* to use the soup substitute (Specialty Soup Substitutes - Cream) , as I don't generally use condensed soups in cooking (because of high sodium content). Thanks for the recipe!
