Many, many moons ago, when I was getting married, my mom gave me a collection of the recipes that we grew up on.  The other day, I had a craving for my mom’s meatballs!  This is something she made for us many times as a child.  This recipe has been handed down for at least 3 generations now.  I know that my Grandma made them as well!  We always make a double batch so that we have tons of leftovers!  Hope you enjoy!

1 lb Ground Beef

1/4 C Cracker Crumbs

1/2 C Chopped Onion

2/3 C Milk

Salt and Pepper to taste

1 1/2 Tbsp Brown Sugar

8 peppercorns
