The only thing I do differently is I toss in 1/2 cup of uncooked oatmeal. It makes the meatballs more tender, stretches the meat a tiny bit, adds nutrition and is completely undetectable. A trick from my German mother-in-law!
These are great, I have made them several time, but neglected to review them, shame on me! I only use 1/4 cup of milk and don't squeeze it out. I also add 1 Tbsp. onion powder, take the garlic powder down to 1 Tbsp. and reduced the salt/pepper. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
I fixed these for a small company dinner (5 people).. I only made 1/2 batch and wished I had made the whole thing and frozen the left overs..the only thing I added was some fresh minced onions,bell peppers & garlic and only used about 3/4 tsp of the garlic powder ..this was entirely a personal preference. This would be a good base for an Itilian meatloaf also.. I'm glad I picked this one for the fall PAC
