Yield

Makes 30 appetizer balls
  • 2 LGCM Precooked Bratwursts ( try substituting other cooked sausages if desired)
  • 2 lbs Sauerkraut ( drained, squeezed and chopped)
  • 3 Egg ( beaten)
  • 1 Yellow Onion ( chopped)
  • 1 clove Garlic ( crushed)

  • 3 Tbsp Butter

  • Vegetable Oil

Directions

  • 1

    In a large skillet, sautee the onion and garlic in the butter over low heat for 5 minutes. Stir in the sausage chunks and dust the sausage chunks with flour.  Increase heat to medium and cook until brown.

    In a large bowl, combine the sauerkraut, 1 egg, Worcestershire, parsley and beef stock. Add this mixture to the skillet and cook until the mixture forms a thick paste. Remove from heat and chill 3 hours or overnight.

    After the mixture is cooled, use a cookie scoop to form 1 inch balls from the sauerkraut and sausage mixture. Roll the balls in flour, and then dip in the beaten egg, and finally roll in bread crumbs. Let dry for 10 minutes.

    While the balls are cooling, heat a deep skillet to 375°F and add enough vegetable oil to coat the pan. Fry the balls until brown on all sides, watch carefully to not overcook. Remove from heat and dry on paper towels.
