Recipes using leftovers can be boring, but turning those leftovers into something totally different is fantastic.

Here you take that ham and potatoes and add sauerkraut and cheese to make a casserole that will make you want to have leftovers!

In fact, you'll PLAN on making extras so that you end up with leftovers for this.

Have Oma by your side ... helping you


Sauerkraut recipes are great to have in your recipe file. Often, in Germany, sauerkraut is flavoured with juniper berries and served along side of pork, smoked sausages, or kasseler.

That's why using ham in this dish is so great.

However, if you have any other type of smoked meat left over, use that instead.

For the cheese, I use whatever I happen to have in the fridge. Use that which melts nicely. If you enjoy it as an eating cheese, it will be fabulous in here as well. :)

Sauerkraut info:

There are many health benefits associated with eating this fermented cabbage, sauerkraut. It is high in vitamins C, B, and K, low in calories, and high in calcium, magnesium, and fiber.

It's even healthier eaten raw. Try it in a salad!

If you can find sauerkraut that is unpasteurized and uncooked, it will contain live lactobacilli and is rich in enzymes. You may need to go to a health food store to find it, but it's fantastic in this salad.

Ready to make this Sauerkraut Casserole? But, you don't have any leftover potatoes. What to do?

Oma's Tip :

Don't have any leftover potatoes? 

Peel (if necessary) and thickly slice raw potatoes, cover with water and bring to boil. Simmer until tender which will take about 10 minutes.

During that time you can be frying up the ham and onion.
