Introducing Sundays with Sue

Sunday, December 04, 2011

Readers ask and they shall receive.

Reader Brian writes “Sue (aka Shot of Mom) should have her own weekly feature on the blog. Since she likes football, it should be Sundays with Sue.”

Well reader Brian, I aim to please.

Like Fashion Friday, Thirsty Thursday and Tech Tuesday, today I’m launching Sundays with Sue.

For our first post, Sue suggested Sauerkraut Balls. Sue only makes these during November and December and said that they freeze well. Reader Trish also loves the balls and has made some of her own!

Sauerkraut Balls
·         1 lb pork sausage
·         1 cup chopped onions
·         2 tbsp minced garlic
·         1 lb can sauerkraut, drained and chopped
·         4 tsp cracker crumbs
·         1 8oz cream cheese
·         3 tsp parsley
·         2 tsp dry mustard
·         1 tsp pepper
      ·         2-3 eggs beaten
      ·         ¼ cup milk
      ·         Bread crumbs (I like to use panko)

Cook sausage, onions and garlic until brown. Drain well.

Mix sauerkraut, cracker crumbs cream cheese, parsley, mustard and pepper. Combine with sausage mixture.

Chill for at least 1 hour.

Remove mixture from refrigerator and with floured hand, roll in small balls. Combine beaten eggs and milk and dip balls into mixture and roll in cracker crumbs. Deep fry.
