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 did bump up the flavor a bit since I noticed that other than some salt, pepper and a little onion it was totally lacking any seasoning. I knew some garlic, fresh parsley and a few shakes of Worcestershire sauce couldn't hurt. More important, it wasn't until after I had the meatballs mixed up that I realized, to my surprise, that the bread crumbs weren't intended to be included in the mix - rather, the meatballs were to be rolled in them. Frankly, that seemed odd to me, so I'm glad I made the "mistake" of adding the bread crumbs, the traditional way, to the meat mixture. But it's really the sauce that brings these meatballs to life - creamy with a pronounced fresh dill flavor. These were part of our assortment of appetizers for our New Year's Eve celebration, but the ample amount left over will be great reheated and served over hot, buttered noodles. Four stars rather than five simply for the instruction to roll the meatballs in bread crumbs rather than adding them to the meat mixture.
