“This is an old recipe of my mother's - I have no idea where she got the name but this is what she always called it. When I make this now I put a farmer's sausage on top and bake it in a 350F oven for about 30 minutes covered 15 minutes uncovered. Serve with mashed potatoes. Preparation time includes the soaking time. If this is an extra side dish it will be for 4 people. My tastes have changed over the years and I still find this tasty but I like my veggies under cooked now. I have grown to love sauerkraut so I only barely rinse it but make sure that you squeeze it dry.”
