Rick Beach

1lb       Sausage (bulk ground)
½         Onion Sweet type chopped
1 Cup   Sauerkraut (drained)
4 oz      Cream Cheese
1          Egg, Beaten slightly
1 Tbsp  Flour
1 tsp    Dry Mustard
1 tsp    Cilantro (Dried Flakes)
¼ tsp    Celery Seed
            Salt
            Ground Black Pepper
2 Cups Milk
3          Eggs beaten slightly
2 Cups Dried Bread Crumbs
            Oil for frying

In a skillet Brown the sausage and onions breaking up the sausage as it cooks.

Drain any grease.  Add Sauerkraut, Cream Cheese, Egg, Flour, Mustard, Celery Seed, Salt & Pepper. Combine well.

Roll in 1 inch balls.  Place on cookie sheet and place in freezer until partially frozen

In a bowl combine the milk and eggs.  In a second bowl place the dry Bread Crumbs.  Dip each ball into the milk/egg liquid mixture, and then roll in the bread crumbs to coat.

Deep Fry or skillet fry, in oil, the balls about 5 minutes.

Serve skewered with a toothpick as an appetizer, with your favorite dipping sauce.
