This dish is very popular in Buffalo, where I live-especially during football season, and I make it often. The only issues I have with this recipe are: 1. that it presumably uses the drippings from a half pound of bacon in which to fry the onions. Seems like a lot of grease to me. I just leave a tablespoon or so in the pan. 2. I double the amount of mushrooms. They cook way down and add a lot of flavor and texture. 3. I drain and squeeze the sauerkraut dry, but do not rinse it. Rinsing makes a much blander dish. It's just as easy to double the recipe, considering all the prep and dirty pans, and makes great leftoivers

The taste was not so great, but the texture was oddly addicting. Probably will not try this one again.

This was different and easy. A great way to use up bacon. I did add two large chopped garlic cloves in with the onion and fat free soup. My husband loved it. I will make this again.

I have made this recipe several times now and it is always delicious. I use the whole pound of bacon and use canned mushrooms instead of the fresh and it turns out great every time.

This was great. I used chopped kielbasa instead of bacon, and threw some buttered bread crumbs on the top before baking. (The mixture looked a little dry and I didn't want it to dry out in the oven.) It came out very well; not too saucy, not too dry, and with excellent flavors. This would be great to take to an autumn or winter potluck.

This was really very good. I was a little sceptical but pleasantly surprised. We did not change a thing. Thanks. This will be made again.

Very good stuff. My mom has a similar recipe that calls for crumbled italian sausage...I might try that next time. My boyfriend, who HATES sauerkraut liked this well enough that he gave me permission to make this one again. Not a fancy dish but it is filling and tasty. Thanks Joanne.

Do not rinse the sauerkraut, only drain it! You are washing away the flavor!!Otherwise I make this exactly the same way! wonderful recipe!
