For the meatballs: Grind the toast in a food processor until finely ground. Peel and finely chop the onion. Add the onion, breadcrumbs and egg to the pork and season with salt and pepper. Shape the mixture into small meatballs. Heat the butter in a large pan and sauté the meatballs for about 5 minutes, until browned on all sides.
