- For the meatballs: shopping list

- 1/2 pound uncooked sausage shopping list
- 3/4 cup bread crumbs, cracker crumbs, or oatbran shopping list
- 2 eggs shopping list

- salt, pepper (to your taste) shopping list

- For the gravy: shopping list

- 1 tsp. hot paprika shopping list
- 1/2 cup onion, diced very finely shopping list
- 3 cups total of beef stock, chicken stock, or a combination shopping list

How to make it
- Mix the meatball ingredients well with your hands until all ingredients are completely combined. Shape into small balls (slightly smaller, and much rounder, than a chicken egg). Bring the water or stock to a boil in a large pot. Add the meatballs, reduce heat and simmer about 20 minutes or until done.
- Meanwhile, heat butter over medium heat in large skillet or sauce pan. Add paprika and sauté about 1 minute, then add onions and cook until fragrant and translucent, stirring often. Raise heat and add stock(s). Combine whole wheat flour or corn starch with about 1/2 cup water (mix well) and add to mixture, whisking in. Cook about 10 minutes until gravy is slightly thickened and reduced. Lower heat to low and whisk in sour cream. Heat through.
- Drain meatballs and transfer to a serving dish. Pour gravy over, and serve. I like this over spaetzle or other dumplings.
