Asparagus Soup With Mini Meatballs
60 mins (prep 45, cooking 15)
13 ingredients
4 servings
This is a traditional Danish recipe often used as part of a wedding reception menu. The recipe originally called for whipping cream but I prefer the lighter version using 5% coffee cream. The mini meatballs take a bit of time to prepare, but you will be happy you did! Below is the lighter version including ground turkey in the meatballs, but if needed 50/50 of beef and pork will work well.
