How is it, that your grandma's cooking somehow always tastes better than your own??
Anyway, this is how my grandma used to make her classic meatballs...
What you need (for 6 large meatballs):
800g ground beef
salt & pepper
freshly grated nutmeg
Melt the butter in a large pan. In a bowl, mix the ground beef with the eggs, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, nutmeg and paprika and shape into 6 balls. Fry the meatballs in the pan until browned, then add water and let them simmer for a while, with the lid partly covering the pan.
Serve with potatoes and veg, or sliced on a sandwich.
