    PanNan's Note:

    My friend Mary, a diehard Packer fan, shared this recipe. It's perfect for tailgate parties, potlucks, or family gatherings. You won't recognize the saurkraut at all. It has a wonderful sweet/sour chunky sauce with just a little kick to it. There are never any leftovers.

      This is crazy-good! Packers fans everywhere will tailgate with this recipe. I have been wanting to try this recipe for some time, and was attracted to it because my hubby is from Green Bay and loves the Pack. These were fantastic meatballs. One thing I might try next time, is to use Pace Picante (medium) instead of the Heinz Chili Sauce. We like just a little more fire in west Texas! There was nary a meatball left in the dish at our house. Thanks, PanNan, for a fantastic appy recipe! I'll make this during football season --OFTEN!

      Honestly, this wasn't my favorite, but my guests just raved about it and my kids love it. It made the house smell fantastic in preparation for my holiday party. I did put it in the crock pot rather than doing it in the oven and they turned out wonderful.

      I wish I could give you more than 5 stars for this one! I absolutely loved it! The sweet and sour taste this recipe has is so pleasant. It was a big hit at my party. I must say thought that my German DH was a bit skeptical about this because of the interesting use of sauerkraut, but this recipe definitely made a believer out of him that sauerkraut has other uses :). Thank you for this recipe!
