Found this recipe in an old cookbook about 20 years ago. It had no name of contributor. It was called, simply, Old Sauerkraut Dish. My family,mostly, likes Sauerkraut and even the ones who didn't liked this!It was easy and cheap and became a fast "go to" dish. Great because the kids could easily make it, if need be.

How to Make Sauerkraut Shepherd's Pie


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350, and spray 2 casseroles , a 9x13 and 9x9 with non stick spray. Set aside.
  2. Brown ground beef with chopped onion and seasonings. Drain and divide between the 2 casserole dishes.
  3. Top with frozen corn, then add the layer of sauerkraut again divided into the pans.
  4. Mix 1 cup of cheese into the potatoes. If the potatoes are not seasoned, season with salt and pepper and garlic. You can use instant mashed potatoes, I often do.
  5. Spread the potatoes, onto both dishes and top with remaining cheese.
  6. Bake until bubbly and cheese is well melted. Serve with salad of choice for a hearty meal. Seldom had any leftovers. : < ((
