My father used to make these tender meatballs every year for Christmas when I was a kid. Now I carry on the tradition, and everyone still loves them.

Ingredients

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • DILL CREAM SAUCE:
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill seed

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Crumble beef and pork over mixture and mix well. Shape into 1-1/2-in. balls. In a large skillet, cook meatballs in butter in batches until a thermometer reads 160°. Remove and keep warm.
