This is one of my most "asked for" recipes. Please don't judge it before you have tried it. I often get asked to make this and bring to work, keeping my co-worker cops happy is important to me! Trust me.. after this.. you WILL be a believer in Sauerkraut!

  3. using a 7x11 casserole pan, layer 1/2 of hamburger mixture
  4. Cover with sauerkraut
