Preparation steps

1.

Cook shallot in butter until translucent. Soak roll in milk, then squeeze to remove excess liquid. In a bowl, combine roll, shallots, egg, ground meat and parsley. Season with salt and pepper. If the mixture is too soft, add breadcrumbs. With wet hands, form small meatballs. Fry meatballs in clarified butter in a hot pan until golden brown.

2.

Serve meatballs with hazelnut sauce and buttered vegetables.

3.

To make sauce: Toast hazelnuts in a dry frying pan, then remove from heat and let cool. Remove crust from white bread and soak in a little water. Squeeze to remove liquid, crumble and mix with ground hazelnuts, tomato paste, lemon juice, crème fraîche and oil. Press garlic through a garlic press into the mixture and stir in up to 1 cup of water until the sauce is smooth. Season with salt to taste.
