1 lb

2/3 c
italian bread crumbs
1/2 c

2
eggs
1/3 c
fresh parsley

1 tsp
italian seasoning
1/4 tsp

1/2 tsp

1 Tbsp
worcestershire sauce
enough milk to moisten bread crumbs
1/2 tsp
garlic powder

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In large bowl, combine the meats,cheese, bread crumbs soaked in milk,onion, eggs, garlic, parsley.salt ,pepper,italian seasoning, and worchestershire sauce
2
Mix thoroughly, but don't over mix, will make the meatballs tough.

The trick to moist meatballs is softening bread crumbs in the milk
3
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.
4
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..
