  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red pepper
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped white onion
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp whole milk
  • 1/3 cup grated gruyere cheese

For the Cheese Sauce:

  • 2 tbsp of butter
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 6 oz velveeta cheese cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup shredded gruyere cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt and pepper


In a large bowl add, ground beef, green peppers, red peppers, onions, mushrooms, garlic, bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, whole milk, grated gruyere cheese and an egg. Mix all the ingredients together and form into 20 balls.

    Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add 2 tbsp of olive oil. Let the oil heat up for about one minute then add the meatballs. Cook for 8 minutes, rotating often to get all sides evenly browned. Remove meatballs from skillet and prepare cheese sauce.

      Melt 2 tbsp of butter over medium-low heat and add in 1 tbsp of flour, this creates a roux to thicken the sauce, and mix until smooth, about 1 minute.

        Pour in 3/4 cup whole milk and stir to combine.
