Oklahoma Comfort Food: Brats, Cabbage and Green Bean Casserole

Recipe by  

"This unusual combination of ingredients in a pot came to us through a friend by way of her mother. Our friend's mom takes food to families who have suffered a death in the family. They take all sorts of things but this always goes first. It is tasty. She uses kielbasa but we use brats. We also use Splenda instead of sugar. It freezes and reheats well."

Good basis but needs some tweaking to make it more flavorful. I added some freshly minced garlic to the onion. Also used Adobo seasoning instead of salt, added a can of diced tomatoes, and also a shake of red pepper flakes. Turned out pretty good.

This recipe was pretty good. It is more of a stew than a casserole. I made a few changes: I used one bottle of beer instead of water, I added garlic to the onion sautee, and I added a chipotle seasoning as other reviewers said it needed something. I also cooked it covered, since it didn't seem to be cooking the brats well with the lid off. I would make it again, we are a family that loves brats and we're always looking for something a little different!

This is great especially during rainy days!! I found out that Brats with beer flavor tasted exceellent than regular Brats. It's really delicious with steamy jasmine cooked rice. Thanks for sharing this comfort food!!!

Interesting combination, but very bland. It needs something to spice it up.

This was outstanding even though my troopers were a little sceptical at first. I added garlic with the onions like someone had recommended and also used the beer instead of the water for the green beans, FABULOUS! I also added 4T butter instead of 2.
