Classic Meatballs - makes 16 (beef and pork)

Insert the large metal chopping blade into the large work bowl of the Cuisinart® Food Processor. Put the onion, parsley, bread, meat, dry milk, salt and spices into the work bowl and pulse 4 to 6 times, then process until finely chopped. Add the eggs and water and pulse until the desired consistency is reached; be careful not to overprocess. Shape the mixture into balls, 2 tablespoons each.
