MAKE THE BALLS
Cook the sausage and onions in a medium skillet over a medium-high heat until the sausage is just done, breaking the sausage up with a fork as it cooks. Remove from heat. Add the sauerkraut, cream cheese, egg, flour, and mustard. Add salt and pepper to taste. Mix well.
Roll into 1″ balls. Place in the freezer on a plate or cookie sheet topped with wax paper until partially frozen.
BREAD THE BALLS
In a medium bowl, combine the milk and the eggs. Dip each ball into the mixture and roll in the bread crumbs.
