Sauerkraut Balls...anyone have a recipe that they use and know it will taste good?

I have perusing recipes for sauerkraut balls and i find the variations kinda of astounding, one recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of breadcrumbs, and another one for two cups of the stuff, some call for a bit of meat, and others for a lot, yet the yield is pretty much the same..what gives? 
 
I would prefer a recipe of this item from people who make them or at least know of a good recipe. Anyone willing to share?

    As far as the issue of the quantity of meat in the sauerkraut balls goes, I think this would depend entirely on your own taste and likes and dislikes.  For sauerkraut itself, I enjoy it both cooked with meat and served hot as well as without meat served cold as a salad.  I find them to have quite different flavors.

    I have used the recipe on tasteofhome.com as it reminds me of the ones Maders German restaurant serves in downtown Milwaukee. Very good recipe!!

    AnnPeeples:Thank you..the one from Taste of Home seems like a good version to me.
    6star-- i have only had sauerkraut in a dish called bigos, or Polish Hunter's Stew and found it very delish.

    Ann, the recipe I'm seeing that sounds good has a lot of ham in it.  Is this the recipe that you make?
     
    TIA,
    KE

    Using corned beef might seal the deal for me.
     
    Do you use any type of dip or mustard with these?

    I serve them with a good brown course ground mustard with horseradish in it. But they stand alone well. I would imagine you could experiment with different sauces!

    Thanks, Ann.
     
    Do you deep fry them or fry them in a pan? 
     
    I'll probably come up with more questions.
