I used turkey sausage in palce of the pork. They were awesome!
I made this recipe last night, and oh so good, but very, very rich. I messed up and forgot to buy cream cheese, so left that out and had to add more bread crumbs to the mixture to get it to stick together, will try with cream cheese next time. Also doubled recipe, and cut back on the sauerkraut. Very tasty, yummy recipe.
