Nina's Meatballs

My husband is Italian and his family has many recipes that have been carried down through the years, one being their meatballs.  We make these to use right away or they also freeze well.  I love recipes from families and I typed it just as it was given to me!

2lbs of ground beef (ground chuck makes it a tastier meatball, a meatloaf mix of beef, pork and veal makes the absolute best, but you can also use 93% or higher fat free)
3 eggs
1/4 c milk
Italian bread that is soaked in milk, then broken up OR 1/3 c of bread crumbs
Salt and pepper
Fresh parsley, cut up
2 Tbsp of grated parmesan cheese

1.  Mix well
2.  Make meatballs any size you want
(you can freeze at this point by flash freezing, then putting into a Ziploc bag)
3.  Put some olive oil and copped garlic in a pan and brown the garlic
4.  Brown the meat, then use a slotted spoon to get the grease off of and drop into sauce.
5.  Let the meatballs cook in the sauce on low for at least 3 hours.
