So I was bored and didn't really want to slave over the stove. But the kids claimed they were starving. And I hadn't gone grocery shopping yet, so I had limited resources to work with. So I took what I had and made quite the tasty treat. Quick and easy too.
1 kielbasa sausage (sliced)
1 pkg frozen Potatoes O'Brien (the diced potato with chopped bell peppers)
2 cups shredded mild cheddar cheese
1 16 oz jar sauerkraut (drained)
4 tablespoons butter/margerine
salt, pepper, garlic powder, pinch of red pepper flakes
Preheat oven to 350°. Spray 9x13 cake pan with non-stick spray. In a mixing bowl, pour in frozen potatoes; season with salt, pepper, garlic powder and red pepper flakes; sprinkle on drained sauerkraut and add sliced kielbasa sausage. Mix and pour into cake pan. Add butter pats or spoons. Cover and bake 50 minutes. Remove cover, add shredded cheese. Return to oven (uncovered) for 15 minutes, until cheese melts.
Serve with garlic toast, dinner rolls, a side salad, or rolled up into a tortilla, or just eat alone. It was quite delicious so I've deemed it a keeper. I may add more bell peppers next time.
