I chose this recipe because I love meatballs! CHEMISTRY INFORMATION: Salt is a pure substance (NaCl). The heterogeneous mixtures are ground beef, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, the egg, onion, and the bread crumbs. The homogeneous mixtures are milk and Parmesan cheese. One physical change happens when the meatballs get hotter in the oven. Another physical change is when you mix all of the ingredients together. When the meatball turns brown, that is a clue that there is a chemical change. The amazing aroma of cooking meatballs is another clue that there is a chemical change.
