Dear Old Dad


2 lbs ground beef
1 or 2 lbs ground pork
1 cup parmesan cheese ground
1 cup bread crumbs or (2 slices of bread soaked in milk)
4 eggs
2 cups chicken stock or tomato juice

mix well in bowl. it will be very loose

make meat balls and place in open pan. add chicken stock to cover at least 3/4 of meat balls .bake at 350 for 35 to 60 minutes depending on size of meat balls.
if using chicken stock, donít add salt as the stock is salty
if using tomato juice add some salt unless the tomato juice is salty.
we use the chicken stock 99 % of the time
if i were to use the tomato juice, i would dilute some brands of it. it can be overpowering.
add the meat balls to the sauce or serve separately. i have also used these meatballs in leftover turkey or chicken gravy. it also makes a great meatloaf with ketchup on top and maybe a slice of bacon before baking.
