Meatball Appetizers with Creamy Dill Sauce

Between holiday parties and the playoffs coming up I figure we can use all the fun appetizer ideas we can find! How about another one that showcases dill, these Meatballs with Creamy Dill Sauce didn't last long here:@) I used frozen meatballs but if you click the link there's a recipe for Swedish Meatballs from scratch too.
And if you'd like to make them more substantial than party food I'm sure they'd make a great dinner served over noodles.

Creamy Dill Sauce-from Taste of Home Community
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour 
2 cups beef broth
1 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons fresh chopped dill or 2-3 tsp dry dill weed
1/4 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  1. Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour until frothy. Let bubble 2 minutes. Gradually stir in beef broth until smooth. Simmer 10 to 12 minutes until slightly thickened, stirring often.
  2. Stir in sour cream, dill (if using dry, start with 1-2 tsp and add more to taste) and lemon peel. Serve immediately.
Speaking of football, we have a big game Sunday night! 
Some how Earl got a hold of the chalk...
 Have a happy day:@)

    I was going to go outside to see if I still have any dill & mint that haven't yet been killed off. If so, I may just try these. I keep Sam's Club meatballs in the freezer at all times. thanks!

  14. Whenever I have a gathering of friends there are always meatballs to be had. Sour cream and dill seem to go so well with meatballs…your dish is perfect to serve during all the playoff games.
