Preparation

In bowl, beat eggs; mix in onions, crumbs, Worcestershire, mustard, salt and pepper. Mix in beef. Shape by level tablespoonfuls (15 mL) into about 150 balls.

Place 1/2 inch (1 cm) apart on 4 large foil-lined rimmed baking sheets; bake, 2 sheets at a time, in top and bottom thirds of 450°F (230°C) oven, rotating and switching pans halfway through, until no longer pink inside, about 10 minutes.

Let cool for 30 minutes; refrigerate until cold. Freeze in single layer until solid. Transfer to 4 resealable freezer bags; press out air and seal. (Make-ahead: Freeze for up to 1 month.)

Makes about 150 pieces.
