Could I use milk instead of water?

I've seen a few other recipes that use milk for their liquid instead of water. I have a bit left over from making ice cream. Thanks!

This recipe garnered a whole mess of comments, mostly about the use/non-use of veal and the ensuing authenticity of the actual meatballs. I love this recipe, but I substitute additional beef and pork for the veal and have always used water for the liquid, but I would say go for the milk if you wish to use up what you have on hand. The only other advice I can offer is to dig in and get your hands messy and to add the milk in stages, not all at once, as you may not need it all. Enjoy!!
