In the bowl with the milk-soaked bread, add the rest of the meatball ingredients including the cooked onions.
Mix it on low until the bread is broken apart and the meat is combined with the ingredients (using the stand mixer and not hands helps keep the mixture cold and tender).
Using a meatballer, ice cream scoop, or hands, scoop them into balls about the size of a ping pong ball.
Freeze on a cookie sheet if possible.
