      italian meatballs

      3 slices of bread cut into small cubes (including crusts)
      1 egg
      1/4 c. milk
      1/4 tsp. salt
      1 tsp.

      garlic powder
      1/4 c. dried parsley
      1/2 T. dried basil
      1/3 c.

      grated parmesan cheese
      1lb ground beef, or beef with pork mixture


      In a large mixing bowl stir the bread, egg and milk to completely combine and let
      it sit for 15 minutes. Mash up the mixture with a fork to make a smooth paste.
      Add all of the seasonings and cheese and mix well. Add the beef (or beef and pork
      mixture) and stir together until completely combined.

      Form the mixture into balls
      (about the size of a golf ball) and place on a GREASED baking sheet (for easier
      handling when forming meatballs, lightly wet hands with water and the mixture
      won’t stick to your hands).

      Bake in a preheated 400-degree oven for 20 minutes, turning over after 10 minutes.
      Drain the meatballs on a paper towel and place in a large glass bowl.
      Add 2 cups of your favorite spaghetti sauce and stir just enough to cover meatballs.
      Cover bowl with paper towel and microwave on medium for five minutes, stir, recover
      and microwave on low for an additional 20 minutes.
      **These can be frozen**.

      Do you know how long these last in the freezer if they are vac-sealed .

      No, sorry. We eat leftovers here all the time and usually there is nothing left to freeze.

      Ok well thanks anyway I will do the normal 6 months !!!

      I would think they would probably last about 30 days or so in the freezer. (But that is just a guess.)
