1 pound combined beef, veal, pork (must be fresh)
3 large eggs
1 cup grated Romano or Parma Cheese
1 cup bread crumb
1 clove garlic - minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 cup milk

(All mixing is done be hand)

In a large bowl mix beef/veal/pork with eggs. Then add bread crumb, cheese, and salt. Finally add minced garlic in stages. Add a little garlic, then mix. Add some more, then mix. This way all the garlic does not end up in one meatball. Now, it's time to roll up the balls. Average size is roughly 2 inches in diameter. I usually get around 18 to 20
meatballs per pound.
IMPORTANT! Do not cook meatballs in your pasta sauce! Meatballs cooked in sauce loose their flavor. The real key to a tasty meatball is cooking the them in an oven. So, heat oven to 375. Place meatballs on a rack - then on a cookie tray.
Bake for 12 minutes on one side then 10 minutes for the other.
