"I shall content myself with merely declaring my firm conviction that, for the seeker who would live in fear of God and who would see Him face to face, restraint in diet both as to quantity and quality is as essential as restraint in thought and speech." -Mahatma Gandhi

Meatballs (Cruise's Favorite!)

1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (I always add a little more than 1/2 tsp)
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 small onion, chopped (1/4 cup)
1 large egg
1/2 to 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning (this is actually not in the recipe, but I always add it in)

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.

2. In large bowl, mix all ingredients. Shape mixture into twenty 1 1/2 inch meatballs*. Place in ungreased 13x9-inch pan or on rack in broiler pan.

3. Bake uncovered 20-25 minutes or until no longer pink in center.

*I like to shape the meatballs using an ice-cream scoop; it makes it a little easier to make them all the same size.
