Sauerkraut Balls

From Blogger Pictures

This is a staple for games and especially for the annual Zegerhaus Zegerfest.

8 oz. mild sausage (use hot if you'd like)

1/4 c. finely chopped onions

14 oz sauerkraut (squeeze dry and chop fine)

2 tbsp. plain bread crumbs

*5 oz cream cheese it helps to soften to room temperature

2 tsp. parsley

1 tsp. ground mustard

1/2 tsp. garlic salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

1/4 c. flour

2 beaten eggs

1 c. plain breadcrumbs

Cook sausage and onion until meat is brown; drain. Add sauerkraut and 2 tbsp. bread crumbs to the mixture. Combine cream cheese, parsley, mustard, garlic salt, and pepper. Add to sauerkraut mixture. Chill one hour. Form into small balls and coat with flour. Dip in egg mixture and roll in bread crumbs. Fry in deep fat until brown. Usually takes about 4 minutes at 375 degrees.

Note: The above picture is a doubled recipe. Depending on the amount of people you're serving you may need to double the ingredients.

Be sure to comment on how yours turned out. I'd love to hear it.

Happy New Year!

*EDIT: It's 4oz of cream cheese not 5. Sorry, Fred.
