Our creamy Gouda has a magnificent melt and makes the velvety sauce something special.


  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 2 pounds homestyle frozen meatballs, thawed in refrigerator at least 3 hours
  • 1 1/2 cup beef stock, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup shredded Roth Gouda cheese
  • 3 tablespoons chopped parsley


  1. Heat oil in large, heavy skillet; brown meatballs in 3-4 batches, about 2 minutes per side, 4 minutes total. Set aside.
  2. Heat oven to 375 °F. In sauté pan, stir beef stock and cornstarch well, until cornstarch is dissolved.
  3. Place over medium heat and slowly heat beef stock-cornstarch mixture, adding allspice and nutmeg, stirring constantly until mixture begins to thicken. Add sour cream; continue to stir until sauce returns to simmer. Slowly add cheese. Stir to combine and remove from heat.
  4. Place reserved meatballs in shallow baking dish; top with sauce. Bake 15 minutes or until hot and bubbly.  Sprinkle parsley overall.

Note: You may omit browning the meatballs if desired.
