  • Meatballs:
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup green bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, optional, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 6 oz. velveeta cheese, cubed
  • 1/2 cup provolone or American cheese, grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • fresh parsley, garnish, optional


  1. Mix together ground beef, bell pepper, onion, mushrooms and garlic together in a large bowl, then mix in Worcestershire sauce, egg, milk and parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Form mixture into 1 1/2-inch balls, making roughly 20 of them.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a heavy-bottomed pan or skillet over medium high heat and pan fry meatballs, rotating every 3-4 minutes, until browned all over.
  4. Remove meatballs from pan, then add butter and cook until melted. Whisk in flour to create roux and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until smooth and golden brown.
  5. Gradually whisk in whole milk, stirring until fully incorporated and smooth.
  6. Add in velveeta and American or provolone cheese, stirring until melted, then season with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning, if necessary.
