Meatballs in Onions

25 Meatballs

This is a recipe I found a few years ago, I don't remember where or how it came from, but over the years I improved it and arranged it according to my family and children. The onion sauce is sweet, and really? Even those who don't like onions will love it, I promise. The secret in the sauce is browning the onion and adding spices, of course no spice is mandatory and can be changed according to your taste. Tip: Make white rice or pasta next to this dish, or as my husband likes to eat: 3-4 patties in a bun!! No need to add anything, appetiteicon
