Butterballs are a breadcrumb dumpling simmered in chicken broth with noodles. They are a bit of an acquired taste. I can remember not caring for them as a small child. Grandma would only make a certain number of them for each person. I can remember my mom and Aunt Becky arguing over who would get the ones the kids didn't eat. Now that we are the adults, we fight over who gets the ones our kids turn their noses up to.

The rest of us, however, ate more than our fair share of the German goodies. This, after all, is our comfort food. We only get it a few times a year if we are lucky! It is definitely not for the faint of heart or skinny of waist!
