Good Luck

Written by

"It's bad luck if you don't eat pork and sauerkraut on New Year's Day!" My parents have reminded of this every year since I've been on my own. Luckily, I like pork and sauerkraut. But I enjoy casseroles even more. So, why not combine the two? Here's what I throw together every New Year's Day. For all that delicious luck!

Good Luck Casserole


⅓ cup all-purpose flour
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup milk (I use almond milk)
¼ cup sour cream
1 small onion, finely chopped (or dried minced onion to taste)
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 cup drained sauerkraut
A couple dashes of Mrs. Dash to taste (or the spices you enjoy)
16 ounce frozen O'Brien potatoes

1 lb. smoked sausage or kielbasa, cut up into bite-sized pieces


Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish. Whisk the flour, chicken broth, and milk together in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil until thick, 1 to 2 minutes, whisking continuously. Remove from heat and stir the sour cream into the flour mixture; set aside to cool. Combine the onion (or dried minced onion), Cheddar cheese, sauerkraut, and seasonings in a large mixing bowl. Stir the sour cream sauce into the sauerkraut mixture; fold the potatoes and sausage into the mixture. Pour into the prepared baking dish. Use a spatula to flatten into an even layer. Bake in the preheated oven until the potatoes are tender and the top is brown and bubbly, 60 to 70 minutes.
