"Can't Have Just One" Meatballs

1/2 cup Bread crumbs -- dried
1/2 cup Milk
1/2 pound Ground beef
1/2 pound Ground pork
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon Ground Allspice
1 small Onion -- Chopped fine
1 egg -- Slightly Beaten
6 tablespoons Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Beef Broth -- concentrated
2 tablespoons Butter -- melted

In a bowl, mix the breadcrumbs and milk; let stand a few minutes until milk is absorbed. Add the beef, pork, 1 teaspoon salt, allspice, ginger, onion, and egg and mix until blended. Shape mixture into balls about 1 inch in diameter. Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil in a large saucepan and add 2 teaspoons of salt. Drop the meatballs into the water and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes. Meantime, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar, broth, and melted butter; stir and heatuntil the brown sugar is dissolved to form a glaze. Drain the meatballs and place in a single layer in a 13x9" baking dish. Spoon the glaze over the meatballs and bake, uncovered,for 30 minutes, turning the meatballs by shaking the pan after each 10 minutes of baking.

Makes 36 meatballs.
