    2 1/2  pounds        lean ground beef
    1      pound         lean ground pork
    5      large         eggs -- beaten
      1/4  cup           instant minced onion
    1 2/3  cups          fine dry breadcrumbs
    3      tablespoons   cornstarch

 Mix all ingredients well.  Shape into 48 balls, about 1 3/4 inches in diameter.
 
 TO SERVE WITHOUT FREEZING:  Preheat oven to 350° F. (moderate).  Place meatballs
in a shallow baking pan.  Bake 30 minutes or until meat is 
 done.  Serve with Mushroom Sauce.
 
 TO FREEZE:  Place 12 balls in single layer on freezer wrap.  Allow enough extra
wrap to fold over top.	Complete wrapping by pulling paper up over top of food. 
Put edges of wrap together and fold several times so paper lies directly on top
of food.  Fold ends of freezer wrap over the top 
 and seal with freezer tape.  Label with name of food, date of freezing, and last
date the food should be used for best eating quality (about 6 
 months).  Freeze immediately for 10 to 12 hours before stacking packages.
 
 TO BAKE FROZEN MEATBALLS:  Preheat oven to 350° F. (moderate).	Remove freezer
wrap.  Place meatballs in a shallow baking pan.  Bake 1 hour or until meat is
