3/4 lb. lean ground beef* 1/2 lb. ground veal* 1/4 lb. ground pork* 1 1/2 c. soft bread crumbs 1 c. light cream or milk (I use 1/2 & 1/2) 1/2 c. chopped onion 1 egg 1/4 c. finely chopped parsley 1 1/2 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp. ginger dash each pepper and nutmeg Gravy: 6 tbl. flour 6 tbl. melted butter 6 c. milk or cream 1 1/2 tsp. concentrated meat extract (beef bouillon) seasoning to taste
Mix meats, crumb mixture, onion, egg, paarsley and seasonings. Beat vigorously till fluffy, about 5 minutes. Form into 1 1/2" meatballs. Brown lightly in butter. Remove balls and make gravy. Replace meatballs in mixture. Cover and cook slowly, about 30 minutes, basting occasionally. Makes about 3 dozen balls.
*I used 1 1/2 lbs. lean ground beef and 1/4 lb. sausage for the meat mixture. Veal is scarce here and when we do find it, it is VERY expensive!
