  • 3 g (0.1 oz) black pepper
  • 5 g (0.2 oz) salt
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 200 g (7.1 oz) cheese, diced
  • 40 g (1.4 oz) dill, finely chopped
For the Sauce:
  • 150 g (5.3 oz) sour cream
  • 300 g (11 oz) potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 700 ml (24 fl oz) water
  • 5 g (0.2 oz) salt
For the Mashed Potatoes:
  • 300 g (11 oz) potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 20 g (0.7 oz) butter
  • 30 ml (1 fl oz) milk
  • 150 g (5.3 oz) onion, finely chopped


For the Meatballs:
  1. Combine Ingredients: In a large bowl, mix together the minced meat, eggs, soaked and squeezed bread, black pepper, salt, finely chopped onions, and dill until well blended.
  2. Stuff with Cheese: Take a portion of the meat mixture, flatten it in your hand, place a piece of diced cheese in the center, and shape it into a ball, ensuring the cheese is fully encased.
  3. Cook: Brown the meatballs in a skillet over medium heat, turning occasionally until cooked through. Set aside.
For the Sauce:
  1. Cook Potatoes: In a saucepan, bring the diced potatoes to a boil in 700 ml of water with 5 g of salt until tender.
  2. Blend: Once cooked, do not drain. Add the sour cream to the saucepan with potatoes and use an immersion blender to blend until smooth, creating a creamy sauce.
  3. Combine: Add the cooked meatballs to the sauce and simmer for a few minutes to marry the flavors.
For the Mashed Potatoes:
  1. Boil Potatoes: Cook the diced potatoes in salted water until tender. Drain well.
  2. Mash: Add butter and milk to the cooked potatoes and mash until smooth and creamy.
  3. Sauté Onions: In a separate pan, sauté the finely chopped onions until golden and soft. Fold the onions into the mashed potatoes.


Plate a generous scoop of the Mashed Potatoes, top with a few Cheesy Stuffed Meatballs, and spoon over the Creamy Sauce. Garnish with additional chopped dill or parsley if desired.
