Danish Meatballs with Dill Sauce

1 pound ground beef
1/2 pound ground pork
1/2 pound ground veal
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 eggs
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup dry bread crumbs
1 cup butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups chicken broth
2 cups sour cream
1/4 cup chopped fresh dill

1 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). 2 In a large bowl, mix beef, pork, veal, salt, pepper, eggs, onion and heavy cream. With moistened hands, shape the mixture into 1 inch balls. Roll the balls in the bread crumbs until all balls are well coated. Arrange in a single layer on a large, shallow baking sheet. 3 Melt 1/2 cup butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Stir in the flour. Gradually stir in the chicken broth. Continue stirring until thickened and bubbly, then blend in the sour cream and fresh dill. 4 Melt remaining butter in a small saucepan, and drizzle over the meatballs. Bake meatballs in the preheated oven 35 minutes, turning occasionally, until evenly browned. 5 Place meatballs in a chafing dish and cover with the sauce to serve.
