Yaya's Meatballs

I use either just beef or half beef half lamb. (Lamb is of course a magic ingredient but I admit it's a Greek thing!)

For every one pound of meat use:
1 cup bread crumbs
1 egg
1/2 cup milk or yogurt, to wet the breadcrumbs
1/2 cup pine nuts
1 medium onion, diced and sauteed in olive oil, then allowed to cool

I spice this with the following seasonings, ½ teaspoon each per pound of meat:

Mix well with clean hands to incorporate the mixture, and then use an ice cream scoop to portion out the balls onto a cooking sheet with sides and bake in a hot oven (400 degrees) for 20-30 minutes. They should be nice and browned on top. Test by cutting a meatball, which should be hot and well done in the middle. Serve with Butterworks Whole Yogurt - I think it is the best yogurt! Enjoy, and let me know how you like them.
