German Meatballs & Horseradish Cream Sauce
Rating (0 Rated)
From our Fall 2016 issue of Graze magazine. This could become your new go-to comfort food. And you know what, that wouldn’t be such a bad thing. These tasty little meatballs work just as well on a toothpick as they do atop a bowl of buttery egg noodles. We’ve had them both ways, so you can trust us on this one.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  1. Combine all meatball ingredients in a large bowl and mix with hands until well incorporated. Portion into balls using a 1 tablespoon measuring spoon and place on a sprayed or parchment-lined sheet pan and bake for 20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
  2. Cook mushrooms in a dry pan until all the liquid is evaporated. Add butter and sauté until mushrooms are browned. Add onions, garlic, and capers and sauté for 3-5 minutes.
  3. In a bowl whisk together sour cream, heavy cream, horseradish, beef broth, flour, pepper, and water. Add to pan with mushroom mixture and bring to a simmer to thicken, stirring constantly.
  4. Add baked meatballs to horseradish sauce and stir to coat. Serve immediately.
