- 1 egg
- 1 day-old White roll
- 2 tablespoons parsley

For the meatballs: Soak bread in warm water.
Chop onion. Heat butter in a pan and sauté onion and bay leaf. Remove bay leaf and add well-squeezed bread, meat, egg, mustard and parsley. Season with salt and pepper and mix well.
Use wet hands to form patties. Heat clarified butter in a pan and cook patties until each side is golden brown, about 10 minutes.
