Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine sausage and sauerkraut in large bowl; form mixture into approximately 40 1-inch balls. Place on ungreased baking sheet; bake 15 minutes. Drain on paper towels; cool slightly.
  2. Increase oven temperature to 400 degrees F. To prepare dough, combine cheese, flour, butter, mustard and caraway seeds, if desired; mix well. Press 2 tsp. of dough firmly around each sausage ball. (Dough handles easiest when warm.) Bake on ungreased baking sheet 15 minutes or until light golden. Serve hot with spicy brown mustard for dipping, if desired. Refrigerate leftovers.

Made a double batch of these for an Oktoberfest themed birthday party and they were all gone. They would be just as good without the kraut.

I used left over sauerkraut from another recipe that used apples and sugar in the kraut, so I "soured" the kraut with mustard for this recipe (added mustard to the sausage mixture). I didn't have swiss cheese, so improvised with mozzarella(2:1)and parmesan. Wish I made a little more dough (ran out with 5 balls left). It had to bake a little longer than indicated for the breaded balls to be firm. Came out crunchy and delicious. DH is a lite eater (senior portions) but ate 7 balls dipping them in horseradish! Will make this again.
