1 1/2poundslean ground beef
1/4cuphalf and half creamer
3/4cupsoft bread crumbs
1/2cupfinely chopped onion
1/4cupfreshly snipped parsley
2tablespoonsolive oil or butter(for frying meatballs)
For the Sauce
2teaspoonsinstant beef bouillon granules
2cupshalf and half creamer
Make the Meatballs
Place the ground beef in a large bowl.
Add the egg, creamer, bread crumbs, onion, parsley, pepper, and nutmeg.
Mix well, then form 15-20 meatballs (depending on the size meatballs you would like).
Melt the olive oil or butter in a skillet over medium heat.
Once the skillet is hot, add the meatballs. Cook the meatballs until they are no longer pink, turning them often to brown on all sides. It will take about 10-15 minutes to cook the meatballs, depending on how big you rolled them.
Once the meatballs are cooked, remove them from the pan and place them on a plate lined with paper towels (to absorb any grease). Set aside.
Make the Sauce
Reserve two tablespoons of the pan drippings from cooking the meatballs. Discard any extra grease.
To a warm skillet, add the two tablespoons of pan drippings*, flour, beef bouillon granules and pepper. Use a whisk to combine.
Slowly drizzle the cream into the flour mixture (with skillet over medium heat), whisking constantly to create a smooth sauce.
Cook and stir the sauce until thickened and bubbly. This will take about 5-8 minutes.
Return the meatballs to the skillet and heat through.
Serve over noodles, potatatoes or rice.
