Mix thoroughly, but don't over mix, will make the meatballs tough.

The trick to moist meatballs is softening bread crumbs in the milk

Form into 2 inch balls..brown in skillet with small amount of oil, on med heat, or bake in the oven for 20 min at 375. I do the oven method,Grandma always browned hers in olive oil and a little vegetable oil combined.

Serve with your favorite spaghetti sauce, ENJOY!

I make the balls bigger if using for meatballs subs. I slice them in half,flat side down on hoagie roll, add sauce, cheese, broil for about 10 min...

I also smash them up and add them to my sauce for lasagna..
