Ingredients And Procedures

1/2 c Unseasoned bread crumbs

1/2 c Half and half cream

4 tb Unsalted butter

1/4 c Minced white onions

1/3 lb Ground beef

1/3 lb Ground veal

1/3 lb Ground pork

1 lg Egg

1/8 ts Freshly grated nutmeg

1/2 ts Salt (or to taste)

1/4 ts Freshly ground black pepper

1. Soak the bread crumbs in the half and half for 5 minutes in a large

mixing bowl. 2. Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a small skillet over low to moderate

heat. When the foam starts to subside, add the onions and saute them for about 2 minutes. Let cool slightly. 3. Add the beef, veal, pork, egg nutmeg, salt, pepper, and onions to the

bread-crumb mixture. Gently combine the ingredients with your hands. 4. Cover the bowl and refrigerate the mixture for a couple of hours.

5. Shape the meat mixture with your hands into uniform 2/3-inch balls.

Arrange them on a plate in one layer so they do not touch each other. Let the meatballs stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. 6. Melt the remaining butter in a saute pan or skillet over moderate heat.

When the foam starts to subside, add the meatballs. (Do not crowd the pan; unless your pan is oversized, you will have to cook gthe meatballs in batches and keep the cooked ones warm in a preheated 200 degree F oven.) Saute the meatballs for about 5 minutes until they become brown on all sides. Turn them as necessary, but do so gently. 7. Transfer the 'koettbullar' to a warm platter and serve immediately.
