I fry the onion till it's a little brown at the edges first, which ups the flavour slightly. Really unusual and moreish!

I serve these with cranberry jelly, which goes really well...

Very easy to make. My 7 year old can make these herself. Always empty plates.

I took the seasoning warnings on board and had a lovely meal. Thanks for the tips!

Tasted good but a little bland and nice big squeeze of lemon juice added a little extra zing.

I made this dish and had it with mashed potato, but I also had some with rice the next day.
It's a fabulous recipe - quite simply ingredients but lots of taste and very hearty. The dill and cream really makes it special.

A little extra seasoning needed. Very quick and easy though. I make double the quantity of meatballs and put half in the freezer.

I love this recipe. I've made it with lamb and pork, and yes I agree that a little extra seasoning to the meat is needed. I served it with steamed potato and peas. Yummy!
