1-2 Tablespoon flour
1 teaspoon dry mustard
Ground black pepper and sea salt to taste

1 cup milk
1 egg (slightly beaten)
2 cups dry (unseasoned) bread crumbs (Panko)
Peanut Oil for frying

Cook the sausage and onions in a medium skillet over medium-high heat until the sausage is done; 5-7 minutes. (Break up the sausage with a fork as it cooks) Remove from heat; add the sauerkraut, cream cheese, 1 egg, 1 Tablespoon flour and mustard; salt and pepper to taste; mix together well.
Note: Add one more Tablespoon flour if needed to keep mixture together
Roll into 1 inch balls; place on a plate; cover with wax paper and place in the freezer until partially frozen; 40-45 minutes
In a medium size bowl whisk the milk and the egg together; dip each ball into the mixture and roll in bread crumbs.  Fry the balls in hot oil till golden brown; 5-6 minutes; remove from oil with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel.
Serve as is or with Stone Ground Mustard
