      I grew up in Akron, OH and it was a "hot bed" of sauerkraut balls -- even restaurants served them -- now this was back in the late 40s and since we still return to the area, I know that one restaurant still have them on their takeout menu. However, let me say, the commercial ones are not nearly as good as the ones from this recipe! I think the addition of the cream cheese makes the biggest difference. I usually only make one double batch once a year -- it's a fair amount of work and we try to avoid too much fried food -- but these are YUMMY and we will be having them today as it's a tradition to have pork and sauerkraut on New Year's Day for good luck in my family.

      I used beer bratwurst instead of sausage, and served them with the honey-mustard sauce from http://www.recipezaar.com/148428. They were delicious, and I would make again. Ingredients list says 2 tsp. bread crumbs and directions say 2 tbsp. I used 2 tbsp. and they came out with perfect texture.
