Pork Chops with Sauerkraut Pork Chops 1 large can sauerkraut Granny Smith apples Brown sugar

Mix all ingredients together except crabmeat. Mix well. Toss lightly with crab meat. Make into patties. Roll in bread crumbs. Fry in deep fat until golden brown or bake on sprayed cooking pan at 350 degrees until golden brown.

Brown pork chops on high heat. Remove from pan. Line bottom of large casserole with pork chops, can overlap. Peel granny smith apples and cut into 1/2 inch thick slices. Lightly brown in pork drippings (they do not have to be soft). Place apples on top of pork chops. Place sauerkraut on top of apples (enough to fill casserole). My mother always uses Silver Floss sauerkraut. Add a little water to pork drippings and pour over sauerkraut. Sprinkle brown sugar over sauerkraut covering completely.
