3/4 lb. lean ground beef
1/2 lb. ground veal
1/4 lb. ground pork
Have above ground together twice.

1 cups soft breadcrumbs - about 3 slices
1 cup light cream or half and half
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 tbsp. butter or margarine
1 egg
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ginger
1 dash pepper
1 dash nutmeg
Mix above together until well blended.

2 tbsp. butter or margarine
2 tbsp. all purpose flour
3/4 cup beef broth
1/4 cup cold water
1/2 tsp. instant coffee

Soak bread in cream for 5 minutes. Cook onion in 1 tsp. butter until tender but not brown. Combine everything together and beat until fluffy - about 5 minutes by mixer or 8 minutes by hand.

Form meat mixture into balls and brown in 2 tbsp. butter. Remove balls from skillet. Stir flour into drippings in skillet. Add broth, water, and coffee and heat and stir until gravy thickens. Then put balls back into gravy mixture, cover, and cook on low for about 30 minutes.
