From Dorothy McNett's recipes at A perfect Halloween maindish! Have fun with your ghosts! If desired, cook up some Thai Kitchen thin rice noodles and arrange them in a ghostly pattern on a large platter and then top with the meatballs and white sauce. Be creative!!! Eat and enjoy!

2 - 3 cloves garlic, very finely minced
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
1/3 cup white vinegar
zest and juice of 1 lemon
2 teaspoons dijon mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
a few drops of tabasco or other hot sauce
2 teaspoons local honey
1/2 teaspoonfine sea salt

2 eggs
1 pound lean ground beef, or other ground meat as desired
1 medium onion, finely diced
3 - 4 cloves garlic, finely diced
2 - 3 sprigs fresh parsley, finely snipped or chopped
1/4 cup finely grated Parmegiano-Reggiano cheese
1/3 cup fine bread crumbs (Panko...)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, or a few fresh leaves, snipped
about 1/4 cup of flour for your hands
olive oil to coat the bottom of a saute pan
small bits of black licorice, or currants, etc. for eyes

Very finely dice the garlic and combine in a bowl along with the mayonnaise, vinegar, zest and juice of the lemon, mustard, Worcestershire, tabasco, honey and salt. Refrigerate while you make the meatballs. In a batter bowl whisk the eggs well. Blend in the ground meat, diced onion, garlic, parsley, cheese, bread crumbs. salt, pepper and oregano. Using a little bit of flour on your hands, shape the meat mixture into small meatballs. Heat a heavy bottomed saute pan with the oil. Carefully saute the meatballs, turning and rolling to keep in shape. When done place on a plate. If desired, insert a toothpick or skewer into each one. Now create the ghostly effect by drizzling with the white sauce or use as a dipping sauce. Also be creative and decorate each one if desired with small bits of black licorice or currants, etc. to make eyes.
