German Meatballs

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by diner524

I got this recipe from a man from Germany, he was a patient of mine that I was working with in rehabilitation. Not sure if this is truly a German recipe or his take on one. Note: He didn't suggest a sauce, but I recommend using a can of cream of mushroom soup (with 1/2 or more can of water) and 1/2 cup sour cream and then seasoning with salt, pepper and any other seasoning of choice, and then serving it over noodles or rice.

The gentleman did not mention a sauce because there is no sauce with it. These are not the meatball kind you throw in a sauce , these are " Frikadellen" or "as the Berliner call them "Buletten "or Fleischpflanzerl" in Bavaria. You eat them as the main course ( make them the size of half a Hamburger and flatten them a bit, do not leave them round like a meatball, since is is not one of those.Serve them with a side of salt potatoes or mashed potatoes and a vegetable.Instead of the oatmeal you can use one roll or 2-3 slices stale white bread that has been soaked in water for a view minutes and pressed dry.
