I was rummaging through the contents of my pantry and almost empty refrigerator when this recipe caught my eye. It was on the label of the sauerkraut jar. When I realized I had all the ingredients on hand I took it as a sign – and an excuse to not go grocery shopping. It just goes to show that not all meals need to involve a lot of prep work.

Sun Oven Kielbasa Bake


16 ounces (1/2 of a 32-oz jar) sauerkraut, rinsed and drained

4 green onions, finely sliced

4 kielbasa sausages, sliced

4 to 6 cups mashed potatoes

1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese


Set Sun Oven out to preheat.

Toss the sauerkraut with the green onions in a baking pan. Scatter the kielbasa over the sauerkraut. Spread the mashed potatoes on top, cover the pan with tin foil and a tea towel. Bake in the Sun Oven until heated through, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove tea towel and foil, sprinkle the cheese on top and leave in the Sun Oven until melted, 5 to 10 minutes.

Makes 4 servings.
