"This was named by my two kids as it sounded to them like "yummy German casserole" - I have no idea what it means - but it is amazing! I'm posting it here because I keep loosing the recipe - easy-peezy and so good - real comfort food!"

"I have made this twice now, but modifying the recipe somewhat. The 1st time, I used about 8 oz of wide noodles, along with 1-1/2 cups of sauerkraut (but used bavarian sauerkraut, as that's what I had on hand), plus I added 1 tsp each of garlic powder and onion powder to the flour and other spices. The 2nd time, I used about 7 oz of wide noodles, along with the 2 cups of sauerkraut, plus the tsp each of the garlic powder and onion powder to the flour and other spices. Fixed both ways was good, but while I preferred the less sauerkraut with the 8 oz of noodles, my hubby preferred this dish with the 2 cups of kraut with the 7 oz of noodles. Also... I prepared the sauce in a 3-quart saucepan, and adding the entire cup of cheese to it, then only stirred in the cubed sausage and kraut, and then added it to a greased casserole baking dish, then stirred in the cooked noodles. Topped the casserole with a mixture of 4 tablespoons of plain dried bread crumbs mixed with 2 tablespoons of melted butter, and baked it in the oven for 25 minutes. This made 6 delicious servings! If you love kraut, you'll love this main dish! One more thing... instead of using Kielbasa, I used ECKRICH Skinless Smoked Sausage (a 14 oz. pkg.). Heidi Renee, this is a great recipe. I could eat this at least once a month. Also wish I could rate it with more than 5 stars."
"Great! This was a simple and tasty dish. I took your advice and used kluski noodles - I've always wanted to try them - and sliced the kielbasa. Next time I will cube them as you suggested so it's spread throughout the casserole more. I didn't have any breadcrumbs so I crushed up some garlic croutons that were tasty in the topping too. Thanks HeidiRenee for posting this recipe. Made for PAC Fall 2008."
"I made this for my mother, she loved it thanks for sharing. I doubled the sauerkraut"
"This has been a standby of mine since I found it--so easy, and just delish. I've adapted slightly by adding a small chopped onion (cooked in the butter before adding the dry ingredients) and half a teaspoon of paprika, and of course extra cheese on top. The leftovers keep for a while, too."
"Made this today I had to add extra milk as it was too thick, also added onions and sprinkled extra cheese on the top instead of bread crumbs. There isn't very much flavor to the recipe so I added Mrs Dash and some onion powder. It still didn't have much flavor. It sure sounded good but I'm afraid I won't be making it again. Sorry."
