I've used this simple recipe during the winter holidays for-evah! It's delish, easy and baked! They can be made in advance and used later, too.
Brown sausages in a large skillet until no longer pink. Break up the meat into fine crumbles while browning. Cool and drain in a large colander. Dump the sauerkraut on top and allow to drain. Get yourself a coffee and a holiday cookie ... relax a bit.
Dump the first five ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Put on gloves and mix thoroughly. It's messy, looks kinda gross and very thick ... Using you own best utensils works best for this goodness.
Once mixed, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight or 12 hours minimum. This allows flavors to develop and much easier to work with when rolling.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Using a small ice cream scoop for sizing, make the balls and roll in additional crumbs. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or golden brown.
Serve warm ... Dip with mustard if you like. But they are yummy enough to eat alone!
The balls can be frozen after rolling in the bread crumbs. Place on a baking sheet in the freezer. When fully frozen - rock hard - place in a plastic bag to store.
