Danish Meat Balls with Dill Sauce
1/2 lb. ground venison or ground beef

2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/3 cup finely chopped onions

Roll the meatballs in bread crumbs until well coated. Arrange in a
single layer on shallow baking pans. Drizzle melted butter over the
meatballs. Bake at 375º F., turning 3 or 4 times, until evenly browned, about 35 minutes.
