Sauerkraut Balls...anyone have a recipe that they use and know it will taste good? Tue, 01/4/11 11:38 AM (permalink)
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.

          Thank you for that link.  Sounds like a recipe I might have to try.

            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

                I have made that recipe and have substituted leftover corned beef for the ham.....  Absolutely yummy!!!!  Good luck - - now I am hungry for Sauerkraut balls...  Sigh.....

                    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.

                          They are deep fried, Mar.
