Grandma's Meatballs

Grandma's Meatballs

So Simple and so good. Add garlic if you wish.

36 Meat balls

1/2 cup fine dry breadcrumbs

1/2 cup milk

1/2 lb ground beef

1/2 lb ground pork or ground lamb

salt & pepper

1/2 teaspoon allspice

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 cup finely chopped onions

1 egg, beaten

6 tablespoons brown sugar

1/2 cup beef broth, undiluted

2 tablespoons butter, melted

Soak the breadcrumbs in the milk until the milk is absorbed (use a

good sized bowl that is big enough to hold the other ingredients).

Add the meat, salt, pepper, allspice, ginger, onion and egg, mix til

well blended.

Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil, add some salt.

Roll the meat mixture into golfball (or a bit smaller) sized balls.

Drop the balls into the boiling water and cook covered for 15


Meanwhile heat the oven to 350F and in a saucepan combine the brown

sugar, broth & melted butter, stir & heat until the sugar is

dissolved and forms a glaze.

Place the meatballs in a single layer in a 9X13 baking dish.

Spoon the glaze over the meatballs and bake uncovered for 30 minutes.

Turn the meatballs a couple of times.
