This is exactly what I was craving and more! Lovely savoury flavour, the dill rounds it out so well. The meatballs can be made really small, mine grew quite a bit. I didn't measure everything precisely for the meatballs (I just had a little ground meat in the fridge, so I halved the meatball recipe). If you've no natural yogurt, a dollop of sour cream tops it off superbly. Thanks so much for posting!
