This recipe was an accident. I usually make meatballs from the Betty Crocker cookbook. This time I made a few minor tweaks (the addition of some spices and herbs) and then made a rather nice blunder. I left out the egg. The whole family liked these better than the meatballs with eggs.
1lb ground beef
1/2 cup dry whole grain bread crumbs (I use my leftover bread)
1/4 cup of milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon rubbed sage
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Mix it all up and roll into 1 inch diameter balls. Put in glass baking dishes spaced about half an inch apart and bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes.
UPDATE (4/18/2007): I tried a variation on this last night. I swapped out the sage for 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon ginger (ala a Swedish meatball recipe I was looking at). I liked these better.
