    Units: US | Metric


    • 1 tablespoon flour
    • 1 1/2 cups milk (from boiling potatoes, if you're making potatoes too) or 1 1/2 cups water (from boiling potatoes, if you're making potatoes too)
    • 1 teaspoon watkins meat magic flavor enhancer or 1 teaspoon Kitchen Bouquet


    1. 1
      In a mixing bowl, combine all of the meatball ingredients except the cheese and mix well.
    2. 2
      Take a piece of meat about the size of a walnut, flatten it, put a cheese cube in the center, and press the meat mixture closed around the cheese, covering the cheese completely and evenly so it won't melt out into the pan.
    3. 3
      Spray skillet with non-stick cooking spray, then fry the meatballs over medium heat until they are very well browned on all sides.
    4. 4
      Remove meatballs from pan and make gravy from the drippings.
    5. 5
      Add flour to the drippings in the pan and mix well (you may need to add a little oil if there wasn't enough grease rendered from the meatballs).
    6. 6
      Add milk or water and Meat Magic, and stir well, getting any meat off the bottom of the pan to prevent sticking.
    7. 7
      Cook over medium heat until the gravy thickens and starts to bubble.
    8. 8
      Add more milk or water if needed.
    9. 9
      Return the meatballs to the gravy and serve or serve separately.
