Dei Fratelli Tomato

Sauerkraut Balls


Ingredients:

    1/4 cup Dei Fratelli Diced Tomatoes
    2 cup Silver Fleece Sauerkraut
    1 lb. bulk sausage
    4 oz cream cheese
    1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
    2 cup panko bread crumbs
    3 eggs
    1 1/2 cup milk
    1 cup flour
    Oil for deep frying
    1/2 cup applesauce

Directions:

Drain sauerkraut and make sure as much moisture is released as possible. Then cut sauerkraut down until the strands are about half their regular size. You can do this with a knife, or you can use clean kitchen shears. Render sausage in a medium sautè pan on medium high heat. Break up the sausage as you cook it if using cased sausage. Drain excess fat and allow to cool. In a large bowl, mix kraut, sausage, cream cheese and Dijon mustard. Cover and put in the fridge to chill for 30-60 minutes.

Form mixture and roll into golf sized balls. If the balls are still too wet, throw the balls in the freezer for 20 minutes. Mix eggs and milk in bowl. When balls are ready, roll them into flour, then the egg/milk mixture, and finally in breadcrumbs. Lay out on sheet tray. If deep frying, allow enough oil to just cover the balls in a large sauce pan. Heat oil to 350°F. Use a digital thermometer to check temperature if not using a deep fryer. Carefully add the balls to oil in small batches. Fry for 6 1/2 minutes when frying ball from frozen. Balls can also be cooked in oven at 375°F for 15-20 minutes. Mix apple sauce and diced tomatoes together for a sweet dipping sauce.
