Ever wonder how to make meatballs, aka Fleischklöße or Klopse? Here's a versatile recipe that's very German. It's been in our family for generations, passed on from Mutti's Mutti to me.
Sometimes I get creative when I made these. Out will come the Montreal Steak Spice. Perhaps I'll add 1/2 cup of ketchup or BBQ sauce. Cracker crumbs work well which is a great way to use up stale crackers. If there's time, I'll fry up the onions before adding to the meat mixture.
German meatballs shown above are braised and turn into this delicious dinner: Königsberger Klöpse mit Hollandische Sosse. Below, here's how to make the meatballs ...
Another way I like to use them is to fry these Klöpse and serve either with a brown sauce or even tomato sauce. I also bake them and then freeze them for later use.
