Meatballs .... Savory Meatballs in Gravy

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Timothy H.

When I was in Boy Scouts Troop 34 in Sandusky, Ohio, we use to get kitchen detail and got to make out own menu. This is one that was on the request all the time when we went camping on the weekends!

I made it without the bay leaves and used more onion- which tasted great but did threatened to cause the meatballs to fall apart. Next time I will drain some of the beef drippings before adding the flour/water combo. I'm sure we will cook this again soon. Very tasty! :)
