This healthy recipe comes from NDSU Extension Service.


  • 5 lb. total beef, pork and veal, finely ground
  • 2 Tbsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1 tsp. mace
  • 1 tsp. pepper

  • 1 (13 oz.) and 1 (5½-oz.) can evaporated milk


Mix meats, salt, mustard, mace, pepper and milk. Form into balls of desired size; they will be soft. Brown in butter or place on broiler pan to bake in oven (350 degrees F) until done. Stir together soups in a large baking dish (I use a roaster); simmer briefly. Add meatballs and bake at 325 degrees F for an hour or until flavors are blended. Makes approximately five dozen meatballs.

Makes 18 servings.
