Soak 6 crackers in water; then press dry. Fry 1 chopped onion in butter and pour over the crackers. Add 3 EGGS and chopped parsley; sprinkle with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Mix all with some cracker-meal until you can form into balls and boil in salted water until done. Serve hot with melted butter poured over them, and garnish with parsley.
