This recipe is courtesy of Jeff’s Grandma Baumann. From everything I’ve heard, she was quite the cook, and from every recipe of hers that I’ve tried, it just confirms it. These are a Christmas staple in the Anderson house, and I made them last week, as Jeff was craving them. 🙂
2 lb ground beef
1 lb lean ground pork
1 cup dry bread crumbs
1 cup milk
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 tbsp onion, finely chopped
2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground allspice
Have the butcher double grind the beef and pork (we found at Jewel it comes this way), or mix and grind in the food processor. Add all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
Cover a jellyroll pan with parchment. Roll small meatballs and place on parchment. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 mins or until browned.
Makes about 96 meatballs, which according to the recipe is 12 servings.
You can serve with any kind of sauce, but I recommend some lingonberry jam. Delicious!
