Finnish Meatballs

1 lb. ground beef or chuck
1 med. onion
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup heavy cream or half and half
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. white pepper
1/2 tsp. dried dill (optional)
1 tablespoon butter (the real thing!)

Mix oatmeal, cream, salt and white pepper and let sit a few minutes
to soften the oats. Cut onion in half and chop half the onion in
very small pieces. Slice the rest and put onion in small saucepan
(big enough to hold meatballs) and barely cover with water. Heat
the onion in the saucepan while making meatballs. Mix together
ground beef, chopped onion and cream mixture. Melt butter in
skillet. Roll beef mixture into meatballs and brown in butter
(med. high heat) for approx. 8 min. The key to good meatballs is
to have a very browned outside. Almost burned but not quite. Drain
on paper towels and fry additional meatballs if needed. Put all
the meatballs in saucepan with onions and add water to your frying
pan and scrape blackened bits. Pour this water over meatballs and
if they aren't completely covered, add additional water until you
just cover them. Salt the water. The water should almost taste
a bit too salty. Be careful not to overdue it with salt. Simmer
for 30 minutes.

Serve over boiled potatoes.
