DIRECTIONS

  • In a mixing bowl, combine all of the meatball ingredients except the cheese and mix well.
  • 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.
  • Spray skillet with non-stick cooking spray, then fry the meatballs over medium heat until they are very well browned on all sides.
  • Remove meatballs from pan and make gravy from the drippings.
  • 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).
  • Add milk or water and Meat Magic, and stir well, getting any meat off the bottom of the pan to prevent sticking.
  • Cook over medium heat until the gravy thickens and starts to bubble.
  • Add more milk or water if needed.
  • Return the meatballs to the gravy and serve or serve separately.
