Sauerkraut balls are pretty easy to prepare, it's runnin' down them damn sauerkrauts that takes all the effort.
That looks like the menu from the Beehive Tavern. Yummy!
I have black beans and rice very often. Add salsa and pepper and a little olive oil.The price seems a little high, but I haven't eaten out in a long time.
Mmmm, Black Bean soup ...
I used to cut out recipes that I thought I would like to try. Sauerkraut balls made it to my recipe files, but never passed the "would my guests enjoy this" test.
Black beans and rice, please.
I love sauerkraut on brats and hot dogs, but the idea of sauerkraut balls makes me shrivel.I would try the black bean soup though!
You should have ordered the sauerkrat balls. You only pass this way but once...
Hey, you're in the heart of Appalachia, no? Do as the Appalachians do.
"Liver Pate'" is redundant.
Not all of Appalachia is that Germanic, but along the Ohio River is very Germanic.
"liver pate de foie" would be redundant.
Someone out there is loving these sauerkraut balls. There were over 90,000 responses when I searched Google for recipes. In just a quick glance down the front page, "Ohio" was popping up a lot. Maybe you should drive a few more hours into Pennsylvania, Ann?
That area is full of krauts. I like the sweet krauts instead of the sauer ones.What is the local favorite beer? My Heinekins habit has driven out the king of beers.
Teabag your sauerkraut balls and all will be fine.
I was going to suggest that Althouse should be familiar with Sauerkraut Balls, because the Sauerkraut Ball was likely the crowning touch of the Kraut Festival of Franksville, Wisconsin. But googol says the Kraut Festival is no more. My guess is that the Franksvillians lost heart after an out-of-state corporate raider bought the company and shut the plant down.Google also suggests that Althouse's heart will be the real winner here: sauerkraut balls are lumps of pork sausage mixed with cream cheese, with the sauerkraut holding the mass together as straw does clay in bricks. (And the balls are deep-fried, not baked.)
price seems a little highSeems like Chicago prices, not backwoods prices.What is the local favorite beer?Little Kings? Do they still make Hudey?
Is that menu stapled to some bread!?
Gumbo????Don't eat gumbo outside of Louisiana, or the Gulf Coast of Texas, Mississippi and Alabama. Or in the home of a transplant from those parts.
This is Titus. Not sure how Decode6905 showed up.More menus and food please.Sauerkraut Balls. What the hell is that?The prices are so cheap. How quaint. How South. How not fabulous.What are the accents like?Do they call you Sugar and Baby and stuff like that?
I ignore anything on a menu that has the title Balls on it. Or anything that says Blossom.
The Rare Clumbers and I spooned all night last night. It was very intense.
@Jennifer It's leather thonged to a leather cover.
"Sauerkraut Balls."Are those sorta like Rocky Mountain Oysters?? ;)
Yes, I know sauerkraut's made from cabbage and not some animal... oh, hell, everyone, just go with the joke, will ya??
I think PatCA and Zeb Quinn were right. These don't look bad at all. link.
The price seems a little highMy college eating house served black beans and rice when the budget was really tight, usually with yellow corn as a side. Feed 50 for a couple of bucks. I dump cheese, bacon, sauteed onions, and/or sour cream on mine. My s-i-l drains the beans--big mistake.The only cooked cabbage I've ever liked, or could stand smelling, was deep-fried shredded red cabbage. It's crunchy.
It's leather thonged The sauerkraut would probably rot cotton.
I think PatCA and Zeb Quinn were right. These don't look bad at all. link.No, they don't look bad at all. Then again, pretty much anything edible mixed with cheese, breaded, and deep fat fried tastes good.
Zeb, and others, Augusta is not in Appalachia. You have to go two counties east (Lewis County) to get there, or across the Ohio to Brown County (where Dadvocate apparently resides--or is it Adams?)
I reside in Brown County which is definitely rural. Having grown up in East Tennessee, I have trouble looking at it as Appalachia. They're all damn Yankees to me! :-)
As we say in the land of moonlight, moss and magnolias - you my dear, are a hoot.
