"Inspired by food I grew up eating. The sauerkraut and fennel makes this potato dish a very European-tasting side that goes great with sausage. Just be sure to squeeze out all that liquid from the kraut."

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Step 2

Heat the butter in a heavy pot over medium heat. Add the potatoes, and brown them a bit for 10 minutes, while stirring every now and then. Add a large pinch of salt and pepper.

Step 3

Add the onion, fennel, celery and carrots to the pot; stir and cook for 5 minutes longer. I add just a bit of salt & pepper here too.

Step 4

Remove from heat and stir in the parsley and sauerkraut. Transfer mixture to a greased or sprayed 9x13" casserole dish.

Step 5

Bake for one hour, and stir every 15 minutes so everything gets nicely browned and nothing burns. I add a small pinch of sea salt every time I stir as well.

Step 6

Remove from oven and let cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.
