I hate tinkering w/ something already so good but for my personal taste, I added: crumbled 3 pieces of crisp bacon, 1/2 tsp. of garlic powder, 1/2 tsp. of onion powder, and 1/2 tsp. mustard powder. The results are amazing!


We don't eat pork but like sauerkraut. This was a surprisingly good dish. Will make as a side dish, as an appetizer, and as a snack. Left out the mace (didn't have)but was excellent without. Thank you for a new addition to my collection of must make often recipes.


These were absolutely delicious! I cooked them in a deep fryer, and they came out so fluffly and tender, with the great taste of saurkraut. This recipe is easy, and would make a fast and easy appetizer for company, served with a dipping sauce of your choice. I used honey mustard when I served mine. My husband says "thumbs up"...this recipe is a "keeper"! Thanks so much for sharing it.
