Meet the Cook: I've been making this one-dish meal for more than 30 years. The original recipe called for a single can of sauerkraut - but that wasn't enough for us! My husband (we have a grown son) us pastor to two small-town congregations. Among other occasions, I enjoy preparing this for church potlucks. -Marilyn Dietz, White, South Dakota
- 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1-1/2 cups soft rye bread crumbs
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/4 cup chopped onion
- 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
- 1-1/2 teaspoons caraway seeds
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 2 cans (15 ounces each) sliced potatoes, drained
- 2 cans (14 ounces each) sauerkraut, undrained
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
- 1/4 cup each mayonnaise and horseradish, optional
- In a bowl, combine beef, egg, crumbs, milk, onion, vinegar, caraway and salt; mix well. Shape into 1-1/2-in. balls.
