German Style Meatballs

The news this morning, kinda caught me off guard when they had a segment on meatballs, as today is National Meatball Day and somehow I missed that one! They had a chef on who was showing meatballs served up a little differently than the traditional way we think of them, served over a ton of pasta. One way he serves them was  with roasted broccoli and cauliflower and Kenny and I decided we’d have to try that one as it looked delish! Well I opted not to go with Italian style meatballs today but with the German way instead!

  5. Add sliced onions to the drippings and cook until tender, but not browned.
  6. Whisk the flour into the buttermilk until smooth and add to the skillet.
