1 Prepare the ragù or sauce, if necessary. Place the bread crumbs in a shallow bowl. Then, soak the bread in the milk for 10 minutes. Drain the bread and squeeze out the excess liquid.
2 In a large bowl, combine the meats, bread, eggs, garlic, parsley, raisins, pine nuts, cheese, salt, nutmeg, and pepper to taste. With your hands, thoroughly mix together all of the ingredients.
3 Rinse your hands in cool water to prevent sticking, then lightly shape the mixture into 2-inch balls. Roll the meatballs lightly in the bread crumbs.
4 Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the meatballs and fry until nicely browned on all sides, about 15 minutes. (Turn them carefully with tongs.)
5 Place the meatballs in the ragù or sauce. Simmer until cooked through, about 30 minutes. Serve hot.
