Makes 6 servings.
3 slices bread, crumbled
2 tablespoons chopped onion
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 cup skim milk
2 (12 ounce) packages frozen burger-style crumbles
4 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup vegetable broth
1 cup half-and-half cream
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
In a large bowl combine bread crumbs, onion, pepper, nutmeg and milk. Stir in burger-style crumbles until well blended. Form into 1 1/2-inch balls.
In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the "meat" balls in butter. Remove with a slotted spoon and place in a 2-quart casserole dish.
Whisk flour into drippings in skillet; cook until bubbly, stirring constantly. Stir in broth and cream and continue cooking, stirring, until sauce thickens and boils, about 1 minute. Pour over 'meat' balls. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.
