German Meatballs With Spaetzle

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Lorraine of AZ

A couple of shortcuts make this recipe extra quick and easy. Use frozen meatballs and dried spaetzle and your work is cut in half. Spaetzle, traditional German dumplings, and caraway seeds give good German flavor to this delicious dish. Recipe from BH&G.

I could turn into a real butterball from this recipe. I used the spaetzle from Helens Baked Spaetzle Casserole Recipe #130885. I did sub yogurt cheese for the sour cream. This is a winner, Lorraine.
