I loved the meatballs. I thought the addition of green onions was fantastic.

I did not like the sauce. It was just a white sauce with dill thrown in at the end and was tasteless for us. Definitely didn't do the meatballs justice.

My dad loved the beef version! He was very happy. I also made a fake meat version, since I don't eat meat. Both turned out great! I did add a little bacon to the beef version and it added great flavor. I love the dill sauce. It was very simple and it would be great for noodles or on potatoes. Thank you for sharing the recipe. Peace & Love, ElaineAnn
