Still, I prefer to grind my own meat. I have 2 meat grinders. One is KA atachment and one is comercial style, exelent machine, for serios big work.

You are what you eat.

I'd do three pounds of meat (beef and pork and veal) if you are making small, pick size meatballs. I use one egg per pound. I don't measure breadcrumbs. Sometimes the meat has more fat, so I'll use a bit more crumbs...other times I'll simply add milk soaked bread.
I also add freshly grated locatelli cheese, fresh parsley, lots of minced garlic, and salt and pepper.

How did your party turn out?

How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

I also add cheese to my meatballs. Ever since I made a recipe with parmesan, I decided it was a must- and it does make them delicious.

key to meatballs is get some fresh, day old slices of good bread and make home made bread crumbs. then soak those breadcrumbs in milk. squeeze out excess moisture. use that in place of normal breadcrumbs.

Also, for the onion, mince the onion really fine and sautee it in olive oil to soften. let cool. add that to your mixture.

3..2..1.. HUSTLE! HUSTLE!
