Number of Servings: 132

Ingredients

    3 pounds of pork sausage
    1 cup of onions, chopped
    4 pounds sauerkraut, drained and chopped
    1/2 cup plain dry bread crumbs
    2 (8 oz) packages Neufchatel cheese
    3 Tbs. parsley
    2 tsp dry mustard
    1 tsp. garlic powder (or more to taste)
    1 tsp. Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning (or seasoned salt for milder flavor)
    1 cup of flour
    1 cup of skim milk
    pepper (black or red) to taste

    For coating:
    2 1/2 cups flour
    2 1/2 cups of bread crumbs
    4 eggs beaten with a 2 tbs. water

    Peanut Oil for frying

Tips

The sauerkraut helps the calorie count. At about 60 calories each, they are about like eating a cookie, but so much better! Makes about 11 dozen, 1 inch balls. A lot of work, but worth it for special occasions. We make them at Christmas and eat them through the New Year.


Directions

Brown sausage with onions and drain well. Add rest of ingredients and stir well. Refrigerate until cool. Roll into 1 inch balls. Dip in flour, then egg mixture, and coat with bread crumbs. Fry for 3 minutes or until browned and hot through.

Makes 11 dozen, 1 inch balls. Balls can be reheated on a cookie sheet at 375 degrees for 10 minutes, or microwaved for 30 seconds. Serve with a BBQ sauce for dipping, if desired.
