  • 1 ½ cups bread crumbs
  • cup milk
  • ½ cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt and black pepper


  • 8 tbsp butter
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ½ teaspoon mustard
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • Salt and pepper
  • Fresh parsley, chopped
  • Cooked egg noodles to serve


  • In a medium saucepan cook the onion in the butter over medium-high heat until the onions soften, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
  • In a large bowl place the cooled onions and the rest of the meatball ingredients.
  • Using your hands, mix well for about 2 minutes until the ingredients are well combined.
  • Form small meatballs, set each one aside on a sheet pan or plate. You should have about 30 small meatballs.
  • To make the sauce: Heat 4 tablespoons of butter in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Add some of the meatballs. Work in batches if you have to, brown them on all sides. Use a slotted spoon and remove them from the pan, set them aside so you can make the sauce using the same saucepan.
  • Add 4 tablespoons of butter to the saucepan over medium heat.When the butter is warm, start stirring in flour with the wooden spoon until the mixture is thick.
  • Stir often with the wooden spoon over the heat, the flour will gradually begin to brown. Slowly add the beef stock a little at a time and keep stirring. Add the heavy cream, mustard, salt and pepper.
  • Add the meatballs to the sauce, cover the pot and turn the heat down to low.Cook for about 12 minutes.
  • Add the sour cream and mix well. Add the fresh parsley and serve over egg noodles.
