Oktoberfest Bake

This is a delicious casserole, great for a cold night.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Bring 4 quarts of water to boil in a large pot. Lightly boil the spaetzle for 10-12 minutes, drain and reserve.
  3. In a medium frying pan, sauté bacon until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Reserve. Add onion, apple, salt and pepper to pan drippings. Sauté for 4-5 minutes. Add bratwurst and cook for an additional 5-8 minutes or until heated through.
  4. Lower heat, add cream cheese and reserved bacon to the pan. Continue stirring until cream cheese is blended. Remove from heat and stir in sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and spaetzle.
  5. Coat a 9 x 12-inch pan with cooking spray. Add mixture to pan, top with pats of butter.
  6. Bake covered for 15 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.
