Susan used to make these meatballs at the holidays.
4 lbs ground chuck or sirloin
6-8 slices white bread, crusts removed
couple of garlic cloves, chopped fine
small/medium yellow onion, chopped fine
1 Tbl Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp salt
small can evaporated milk
In a large bowl combine bread, eggs (beaten slightly), garlic, onion, Worcestershire sauce, and enough evaporated milk to make the mixture soft. Add ground beef mixing well by hand. (It’s messy but the only way to get it right.) Roll the mixture into small balls and then roll each ball in flour to coat. Bake on cookie sheet at 350 for 10 minutes or until done.
Mix one bottle organic ketchup and one jar of grape jam in a pan over low heat, stirring until combined and the mixture begins to bubble.
The meatballs can be made ahead of time and frozen, while the sauce is best made when needed.
