    Source of Recipe

    Vegetable cooking spray
    4 tablespoons butter or margarine, divided
    1 cup finely chopped onions
    2 cups cubed fresh bread
    1/2 cup milk
    1-1/2 pounds 90-percent lean ground beef (I use 93%)
    2 large eggs
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1 teaspoon fines herbs
    1 teaspoon paprika
    1 teaspoon dry mustard
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
    2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon tomato paste
    1 cup beef broth
    1/4 cup water
    1/2 cup dairy sour cream (I like to use the light version)
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill

    Preheat oven to 400 degree F. Spray two 15x10x1-inch jelly-roll pans with vegetable cooking spray.

    Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook about 8 minutes or until tender. Transfer to a large bowl and cool.

    Soak the bread cubes in the milk in a small bowl 1 minute, then squeeze very dry, discarding milk. Add bread to onions with the beef, eggs, salt, nutmeg, fines herbs, paprika, mustard, and pepper; mix well. Shape into forty 1-1/2 inch balls. Arrange on the prepared jelly-roll pans. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, turning meatballs once and rotating pans halfway through. Remove meatballs from pans and set aside.

    Pour 2 tablespoons of water into each jelly-roll pan, scraping up browned bits from bottom. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds. Stir in the flour and tomato paste and cook 1 minute. Whisk in the beef broth, water, sour cream and drippings from jelly-roll pans. Bring to a boil. Add meatballs to skillet. Sprinkle with dill.

    Makes 40 meatballs. Serve with rice or noodles!!!!!!!
