Gah! I love this! The fact that there is also sauerkraut in this makes me swoon. Love that stuff!
Sarah Caron says
I also love German flavors. I think it must somehow be ingrained with the bit of German in my heritage. This dish looks incredible.

I love German flavors too. Just last month I made schnitzel. So much fun! These meatballs look so darn good!

I like all those German flavors, too, Renee! Must be my Scholar ancestors 🙂
Erin Dee says
You're not actually German German?! But... your name! It's so insanely German. 😉
Here's a friendly tip: never come to Germany in the winter! Not because it's cold, but because it's grey and miserable. You're welcome. 😀
I love German food but I've never heard of German meatballs before -they look great. This recipe reminds me of being a kid - the only way I'd eat sauerkraut back then was mixed into mashed potatoes.

I do love German flavors (I'm sure it's the German blood in me, too). This sounds like something I'd love...and yeah, I totally want to travel to Germany one day, as well. 🙂

Totally love this! I love meatballs....of any ethnicity! Perfection on a plate. 🙂

My husband will love this
I am Slovak and we eat a sauerkraut & muskroom soup over mashed potatoes on Christmas Eve. It was my grandmothers recipe. I will have to try the meatballs. This sounds great.

German flavors remind me of comfort food, and these meatballs (with sauerkraut and mustard - yum!) sound so good to me.
Katerina @ Diethood says
I could easily inhale that deliciousness in seconds!! The meatballs, especially!
Okay wowzers, meatballs and mashed potatoes. YES, please.
Shulie Foodwanderings says
These meatballs over mashed potatoes are a complete comfort food. I am now craving this dish for breakfast, Renee. Saurekraut, now that is something I was always curious to make,
Renee Goerger says
Carol, you're always to kind and thoughtful with your comments here. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it! Now you've got me thinking about being hypnotized because I think that would be a wonderful way to LEARN German, not just bring back what was once there. LOL. Anyway, glad you like the recipe. It's one of our favorites. So much so that sometimes I'll eat the meatballs cold for breakfast. Yup. True story 😉

Those meatballs look soooo good! I think I'll have to take some ground beef out of the freezer - I actually have the sauerkraut! Pinned, Stumbled, and G+'ed! That's how good I think they are! <3

I hope you love them as much as I do, Renee. Please let me know what you think.
