I spotted this recipe back during the summer Zaar Tour and had to wait for a cold, grey, rainy day to prepare it. The soup is super easy to make however I would next time enhance the flavor by adding both dried dill and freshly ground allspice to the meatballs. Fresh, local grass-fed beef and fresh parsley from the garden were added. My husband and I ate a bowl of this soup for breakfast served with hearty bread. It thickened up nicely, too, overnight. Thanks for posting! Will make again!

This was really easy, BUT, I cheated. We made this recipe for meatballs a couple of days earlier for another meal, but how can two people eat that many meatballs? So, we halved this, added the rest of those meatballs and a bay leaf (I was shocked bay leaf wasn't in the recipe). Delicious.

I like this ~ very easy to make and quite tasty. Simple flavors, but very good. I used grass-fed beef and I got 97 wee meatballs out of it! I did add some parsley, both to the stock and to the meatball mix. It added a touch more flavor. Thanks for posting ElaineAnn ~ I'll keep this recipe around for when the weather cools off a bit! Made for ZWT6 ~ SCANDANAVIA Region and the Queens of Quisine!
