Danish meatballs are yummy bites made of beef, pork and veal. The different kinds of meat give the meatballs more consistency and enhance the taste. Feel free to use just one kind if desired. Ground chicken is also a great substitute if you prefer white meat.
1/2 pound ground beef
1/4 pound ground pork
1/4 pound ground veal
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 medium sized onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
Preheat oven at 375F and slightly grease a baking dish with oil. After, put the breadcrumbs on a plate. Set aside.
Place the beef, pork, veal, salt, pepper, eggs, onions and heavy cream in a large bowl. Mix until well combined. Shape the mixture into one inch balls and then roll them in bread crumbs until they are coated. Place them on the greased baking dish.
Melt 3/4 of the butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Gradually add the flour while stirring until there are no more lumps. Slowly pour in the chicken broth. Set the heat to medium. Stir until the mixture becomes thick. Remove from heat. Add the sour cream and fresh dill.
In a small pan, melt the remaining butter over low heat. Pour it over the meatballs and then bake it in the oven for thirty minutes or until they are golden brown. Turn at least once.
Transfer the meatballs to a serving platter. Pour the sauce over them and serve immediately.
