Nutmeg is a spice i once used a quarter of a teaspoon and never used again. Soaking the bread in milk is a new twist on how i make my meatballs, but it seems easier than using breadcrumbs and eggs. Thanks for the helpful tips on the quantity of parsley and nutmeg.

I made these for dinner and i found the parsley to be way over-powering. It was hard to eat.

I recently made Salisbery Steaks using my modified recipe. Instead of making meatballs. I formed them into pattys, browned & drained them. I used (2) packets of reduced sodium brown gravy mix, I small can of mushrooms, (1) small chopped onion & added the pattys. I let them simmer for 1/2 hour and served them with mashed potatos. A fast and really flavorable dinner.

I reduced the nutmeg from 1/2 to 1/4 teaspoon. The nutmeg tended to be a little overpowering.
