Scandinavian Meatballs

1 pound ground pork
1 pound ground veal or lean ground beef
1/4 cup instant onion soup mix (1 envelope)
2 eggs
1/2 cup quick-cooking oatmeal
2/3 cup milk
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
salt and pepper to taste
2 teaspoons beef stock base, or 2 bouillon cubes
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 cup homemade or canned low fat beef broth (I used 1 10 1/2 oz can)
sour cream or yogurt

Place ground meats, onion soup mix, eggs, oatmeal, milk, parsley, salt, pepper, beef stock base, nutmeg and allspice in a mixing bowl. Mix until blended. Shape into 1 1/4-inch balls. Place 1 inch apart in a shallow baking pan. Bake in a 425ºF. oven for 15 minutes, or until browned. Transfer to the Crock Pot. Pour in broth and cover. Cook on low for 1-2 hours. Serve with sour cream or yogurt.
