Meatball Melties

I think I have finally figured out the secret to good meatballs, meatloaf, burgers. Adding milk into the meat mixture along with breadcrumbs results in perfectly moist meat. I am glad I figured this out now and not many years from now! I have made this before but I do not remember it being as good. I think I used more milk this time. This is a really good recipe if you do not want to wait for a meatloaf. It is a super quick recipe to make. We put this on the multi-grain sandwich bread to make it a little healthier.
