I love the simplicity and honesty if this recipe and dish. The meatballs for this recipe can be bought pre-made from Karusaf and are utterly delicious and easy to prepare. The meatballs are pan-fried with butter and sage and a dash of lemon. This dish is also great for feeding the masses and family, is very cost-effective and can be prepared well in advance.
