"This is a very tasty, but unique, meatball recipe perfect for holiday parties. For some reason, men love these! I have found that purchasing pre-made meatballs cuts the prep time significantly and tastes good, too."

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, mix beef, pork, veal, salt, pepper, eggs, onion and heavy cream. With moistened hands, shape the mixture into 1 inch balls. Roll the balls in the bread crumbs until all balls are well coated. Arrange in a single layer on a large, shallow baking sheet.
  3. Melt 1/2 cup butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Stir in the flour. Gradually stir in the chicken broth. Continue stirring until thickened and bubbly, then blend in the sour cream and fresh dill.
  4. Melt remaining butter in a small saucepan, and drizzle over the meatballs. Bake meatballs in the preheated oven 35 minutes, turning occasionally, until evenly browned.
  5. Place meatballs in a chafing dish and cover with the sauce to serve.

These are requested now for family gatherings. To make it easier I now just add the bread crumbs to the meat mixture instead of rolling the meatballs in it. Very good flavor!

This recipe is great. I have served it as many parties and everyone ask for the recipe. I used pre-made meatballs which cut down on time.

I have a love/hate relationship with this recipe. I've made it a couple of times now. I guess I love the idea and how it CAN turn out. I like to add the bread crumbs to the meatballs instead of ...

I included this at Hubs' request as part of our New Year's Eve array of appetizers. I wasn't enthusiastic about it but surprisingly found I was a lot fonder of them than I thought I'd be. But I...

They were a huge hit at my Bunco party. Thanks for sharing!

Meatballs were a bit bland, I would add a little cracked pepper and a little bit of season salt additional. The sauce was great and made up for it. Great recipe

This recipe was a hit and very filling! I used premade meatballs and cooked the meatballs and sauce together before serving. I also served the leftovers over rice and with a salad for a light d...
