Number of Servings: 36


    1 lb ground Sausage (I choose mild, but any flavor will do)
    1 lb package Neufchatel Cream Cheese
    1 14 oz can shredded sauerkraut
    1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
    1/4 cup skim milk


Brown and drain the sausage. Soften the cream cheese, and drain the sauerkraut. Add cream cheese and sauerkraut to the sausage, mix well, and chill overnight.

(Don't skip the chilling overnight - it helps the balls hold together when you roll them in the bread crumbs before baking)

The following day, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Form the mixture into balls, dip in milk and then roll lightly in bread crumbs and place on a cookie sheet (I line mine with aluminum foil, you can spray with no-stick spray if desired).

Bake at 350 approximately 20 minutes, or until brown. Makes approximately 3 dozen sauerkraut balls (depending on how big you make them).

Number of Servings: 36
