Loved this sauce with the meatballs. SO easy to make and went great over rice! Made for the Hot Pink Panthers, ZWT9.

Yummy sauce! I made a double recipe of this sauce to serve over recipe #424503. I made as written except that I added some Mrs. Dash seasoning, to taste for a little added flavor. Also, I added the sauce to the meatballs instead of serving on the side. This recipe goes together very quickly and easily and complemented the meatballs very well. Thank you for sharing! *Made for ZWT6 Xtra Hot Dishes*

I made this gravy following the recipe exactly. I added one more ingredient ...some fresh grated nutmeg. That addition put it over the top. I had the Ikea meatballs. I just added them after baking for 10 mins. at 450°. Tasted just like Ikea's.
