    I didn't bother sweating the onions and garlic. I just put it all into a pot to simmer. I used 2 cups of soft breadcrumbs instead of dry, and I soaked them in the milk before adding it to the pork. I also used regular pork, so added just a tbsp of butter. For the spice blend, I used 1/2 tsp each of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves. You could always adjust these to your liking.
