Mix cream with breadcrumbs.
Boil potato, peel, mash and add. Add onion, minced meat, egg and salt and season well with pepper.
Knead everything well and form walnut-sized balls. Heat the fat in a frying pan and fry the meat balls in it for about 20 minutes. Remove and keep warm. In the meantime, clean and slice the mushrooms. Fry them with the meat balls for the last 5-6 minutes, adding a little more fat if necessary, deglaze with cognac and add cream.
Serve with rice or pasta.
