Potato Sauerkraut Fritters

1 cup bagged fresh sauerkraut - squeeze out excess water
1 med carrot - grated
1 small onion - chopped
2 eggs - whisked
cup instant oats
2 cloves garlic - minced
1 tsp caraway seeds
salt and pepper to taste
a few slices of jalapenos peppers - to taste - fine diced
1 tsp smoked paprika


Bake or microwave the potatoes and set aside to cool. Squeeze most of the water from the sauerkraut and place in mixing bowl. Add all the remaining ingredients to the bowl and stir to coat well. When the potatoes have cooled enough to handle cut into small cubes. Leave the peeling on. Add to the mix, course mashing the potatoes as you stir. Form balls out of the mix to your desired size, then press them into patties. Fry in olive oil until golden brown.
