    Timothy J Higgins Eva's Note:

    I wanted to find a different way of making the balls so I gave it a try in the oven.You do not need to use all the crumbs, if you have some left over,give them to the birds. For those of you whom would rather bake than deep fry, give these a try.

      This is by far the BEST Baked Sauerkraut Ball Recipe I've had. I have made sauerkraut balls for years, and although good, didn't like all the grease and wanted a healthier version. Here it is! The texture was great! A few raters didn't like the is the fix : use panko bread crumbs and spray each ball with cooking spray before you bake. The balls will bake evenly and turn out crisp every time! My recipe is very similar but not exact, so I used my standard recipe and baked them with this recipe. They turned out great and my family so appreciated the healthier version!

      This recipe is the best "baked" method I have found to date. I made it for a backyard Germanfest and everyone loved them. My son-in-law loves these and has tasted many other sauerkraut balls at actual town German Festivals and he gave these a thumbs up.

      I made these to take to a New Year's Eve party and I give them 5 stars for flavor, and 3 stars for appearance and outer shell texture. While baking is easier and less time consuming, the outcome is not quite as good; however they were still tasty! I found the instructions to be somewhat incomplete as some of the ingredients did not specify amounts and there are not clear instructions for what to do with the flour mixture and egg mixture once you put it together. An experienced chef can figure it out, but the newbie chef might have trouble!
