How to Prepare Traditional German Recipes : Baking German Sauerkraut Casserole

Hi! I'm Chef Rainer Wickel and I am here todaywith expertvillage.


Well we are on to our last step.

We've mixed all of our ingredientstogether in our casserole and now we are ready to bake it.

Now remember this casserole isreally, really good with practically any type of meat.

This is our traditional side dishthat you can serve with any German meal and believe me it is really, really good.

If youmake this for your friends, they are going to ask you to make this over and over again.

So what I've done now is I've preheated the oven to 375 degrees and we are going to goahead now and put the casserole into theoven and make sure you don't burn yourself when you put it in there.

There is no presetamount of time that you need to bake this.

Generally it is about 1/2 hour to 45 minutesbut really it goes more by look.

What you want to do is check on this periodically.

You want to bake it until it is nice golden brown on top.

Make sure you don't over bakeit because it is going to be too dry and it is not going to taste too good.

Well, we stillhave a little ways to go here before it is all baked but believe me, it is well worththe wait.

Okay the casserole has been cooking for about 45 minutes and I just checked onit and it looks like it is a nice golden brown and I think we can take it out of the oven.

Use some oven mitts because you want to make sure you don't burn yourself.

This thing isgoing to be really hot.

Alright and there you can see it is a nice golden brown nowand boy that smells good.

Well, we've made wiener schnitzels, we've made German potatopancakes and now we've topped it off with a delicious sauerkraut casserole.

My crewis getting hungry and this is how we prepare a traditional German meal.
