My name is Emily and I'm a graphic designer and mother of two awesome kids. I'm also a Type 1 diabetic, so a few years back I made a New Year's resolution to cut out sugar and switch to a low-carb diet. I've tried out a million low carb and Ketogenic recipes since then and I've come up with some really good recipes of my own. This blog is about keeping my New Year's resolution year after year.
My sister has been road tripping out West and she came across an appetizer called a sauerkraut ball. When I heard those two words I was like:
How could I have never heard about sauerkraut balls before?
And how in the world do you make them?
A quick internet search revealed that they are kind of croquette made by frying up a mixture of sauerkraut, sausage and cream cheese that has been dredged in bread crumbs.
So it was no problem making a low carb version of sauerkraut balls. I just replaced the bread crumbs with a mixture of parmesan cheese, almond flour and nutritional yeast. And instead of frying them, I decided to spray them with cooking spray and bake them up in the oven. Soon I had a tasty low carb snack with only 2g net carbs each.
