Ingredients

8 oz
ground beef
8 oz
ground pork
1 small
onion
1/2 tsp
each salt and pepper
1/4 tsp
each dried thyme, marjoram and nutmeg
1 1/2 c
fresh bread crumbs
1/2 c
water
2 Tbsp
butter
2 Tbsp
all purpose flour
1 1/2 c
beef broth
2 Tbsp
fresh snipped dill or dill weed
1/2 c
half and half
Options 8 oz
egg noodles cooked and drained.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a bowl, mix your beef and pork with the onion, seasonings, bread crumbs and water.
2
Mix well and roll into balls.
3
Place on a baking or cookie sheet. I had an oblong cake pan and it was perfect. Bake at 400 for 20-25 min. The original recipe called for a rack over a baking pan to catch the drippings. I didn't have one so I used a colander to drain off the excess fat.
4
While they are baking, in a large skillet mix the butter, flour and make a rue. Add the broth, dill and half and half. Mix to make a sauce and let stand til thicken.
5
Once the meat is cooked and drained, add to the sauce and mix well.
6
OPTIONS: You can serve these warm with wooden picks as appetizers, or over noodles for a casserole.
