  • 1 Pound Ground Beef
  • 3 Medium Eggs -- beaten
  • 1 Medium Onion -- chopped
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

Directions Soak the bread crumbs in the milk; mix with the ground beef. Add the eggs, onion, garlic powder, salt, pepper, nutmeg, and mustard; mix throughly. Shape into 40-50 bite sized meatballs. Fry in the butter until brown on all sides.
Mix the remaining ingredients in a separate pan or crockpot. Simmer until the sauce thickens. If necessary, add a little flour or cornstarch to give the sauce enough body to stick to the meatballs. Add cooked meatballs. Serve with toothpicks.
