  1. This was quite a good casserole, it was definitely filling, and an intersting texture with the noodles (I just made my own egg noodles for it). I agree, if you like reuben sandwiches, you will like this. The only thing I did different was add carraway seeds (I always do that with kraut though.)
  2. Easy to make but rather lacking in texture and interest. It is very rich but still bland. It could use some more spice but I am not sure which ones. I made it for a potluck and no one asked for the recipe.
  3. Good recipe! Kind of rich- couldnt eat it too often- but very easy to make!!
  4. Polish people NEVER rinse their sauerkraut. That's why this recipe turns out bland.
  5. I took a hint from a previous reviewer and didn't rinse the sauerkraut. I also used rye bread to make my bread crumbs (more reuben like!). The recipe turned out very good. Thanks for sharing this recipe, my family really enjoyed it!


Welcome! I joined this website in 2001, as a new wife and Mom of a 1 y/o and I was 28 yrs old and did not know about cooking. I found this website cause I searched the web and wanted to find a good recipe for carrots! I found that recipe and so much more here over the years. I learned so much from this website and opened up my eyes to other recipes. I now am 46 y/o. I am now divorced and my then 1 y/o son is now a Marine. I have a wonderful man in my life that loves and appreciates my cooking and I thank this site for all of its help. I still come here for recipes. I hope you like my recipes and your family enjoys them also....there is many here and I love to pass them on.
