  • Combine sauerkraut, ham, red peppers and 3 Tbsp. bread crumbs in large bowl.
  • Mix cream cheese, mustard, garlic and black pepper in separate bowl until blended. Add to sauerkraut mixture; mix well.
  • Refrigerate 1 hour.
  • Cover rimmed baking sheet with parchment. Place flour in shallow dish. Beat egg and water in separate shallow dish until blended; place remaining bread crumbs in third shallow dish.
  • Shape sauerkraut mixture into 1-inch balls, using about 1 Tbsp. sauerkraut mixture for each ball. Roll, 1 at a time, in flour mixture, then egg, then bread crumbs, turning to evenly coat each ball with each ingredient. Place on prepared baking sheet.
  • Heat oil to 365ºF. Fry sauerkraut balls, in batches, 8 to 10 min. or until golden brown, turning frequently to evenly brown all sides. Remove from hot oil with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels.
