      Loved loved loved the meatballs. No ground lamb in several markets, so I used ground turkey and can only imagine how much better the lamb would have been. I did not have enough fresh dill in the garden due to the hot weather, so used my Salt-Preserved Dill for the meatballs, leaving the fresh to sprinkle as a garnish. The veggies - we just did not care for. The meatballs are so good and they deserve outstanding veggies. Next time I would drop the potatoes and treat the rest of the veggies as aromatics to flavor the water and meatballs as they cook. When mine had finished cooking the allotted time, I did not even have the 1/.2 cup of cooking liquid needed for the sauce left in the pan. I am certain that the tempered eggs are meant to be mixed back into the cooking liquid to create the sauce, otherwise you just have scrambled eggs. So I heated up more broth - 1 1/2 cups or so, used the 1/2 cup needed to temper the eggs, then finished off the sauce. The sauce was delicious not only over the meatballs but also over the rice. I think I would make some kind of spinach to serve with this next time. Definitely a dish worthy of your attention!
