Sauerkraut balls??

Yesterday was our Christmas party at work. Someone's husband made these incredible sauerkraut balls. They had Sauerkraut (duh!), sausage and cream cheese - and other stuff... They were without doubt the best thing I have ever had! BUT, she didn't know the recipe and I won't work with her again (she and I are just seasonal til the holiday)

Does anyone have a recipe??

    Directions

    Mix sauerkraut and cream cheese in the sausage mixture.
    Cover and chill in the refrigerator approximately 2 hours.
    Mix egg in another small bowl.
