Low Carb Keto Sauerkraut and Sausage Balls

Low Carb Keto Sauerkraut and Sausage Balls

I just heard about the tastiest thing.

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.

Bon appetit!
