You Can't Ring in the New Year With Out THESE!!

What could be making the Little-Foreman-in-Pink so happy and messy-faced?
What could be Worker #2 be so engulfed in eating that he doesn't notice me taking this picture of him??

What could be making Worker #1 so full of joy?

What could have gotten worker #3 to take his nose out of the new Harry Potter Book?

These Babies!!!

The Worlds BEST
Crispy Sauerkraut Balls

a close up of yumminess.

And today you are lucky enough to get to see my
Top secret recipe for these New Years Eve delights!

I was gonna post this one when I made em for New Years Eve....
But then I realized that you wouldn't be able to make them then if you didn't know about them before that day! Geesh I am kind-of dingy that way sometimes.

Even non-sauerkraut eaters will like this one!

This recipe is a MUST for any New Years Eve at our place.
I remember eating these when I was a child living up north.
It took me years and a trip back to Pennsylvania to find the recipe.
They are GREAT!
They are crispy, gooey, cheesy, sauerkrauty, sausagy, just the way to start the new year!

These freeze wonderfully!
And that helps when its busy Holiday season!
Make em ahead and freeze till ready to use.
Then reheat in a 375 oven for approx 10 min or until heated through
