Recipe by lazyme

This is our favorite sausage and sauerkraut dish ever. It's very filling and smells wonderful while it's cooking. From the Orbit Restaurant (Polish) in Chicago.

Delicious and very easy. I am always afraid to cook in the oven because I am afraid the liquid will cook out (especially since I cut this down to one serving). But it worked perfectly.
