    Deantini's Note:

    This is a traditional Danish recipe often used as part of a wedding reception menu. The recipe originally called for whipping cream but I prefer the lighter version using 5% coffee cream. The mini meatballs take a bit of time to prepare, but you will be happy you did! Below is the lighter version including ground turkey in the meatballs, but if needed 50/50 of beef and pork will work well.

      Loved this soup! I normally don't use canned asparagus, and I was pleasantly surprised by how good it was in this soup. The meatballs didn't take long to make, and the mix was perfect in the soup. Thanks for sharing. Made for 123 Hits Tag.

      We absolutely loved this soup!! It is so full of flavor and easy to make. The meatballs did take a little bit of time to form, but I didn't mind -- it's one of those repetitive tasks that lets you talk with someone or think about other things while doing it. I'd never cooked meatballs in water before, and they came out perfectly done; not mushy and not dry. I added a little more breadcrumbs and a dash of onion powder to the meatballs, but besides that followed the recipe exactly as written. The taste of asparagus really permeated this soup -- I think using the liquid from the canned asparagus really added to the taste. I also used light cream as suggested. All in all, this is a wonderful-tasting soup that I'll definitely serve again!!
