I made this for our church gathering so I thought I would submit the changes that I made in this recipe. I made a rough with the flour by using approx 3 Tablespoons of butter and the 1/4 cup flour. Then I substituted the water for beef broth. I used 1 beef bullion. I also used 1 cup of heavy cream and 1 can of cream of mushroom soup. I eliminated the salt. I also made my own recipe for the meatballs! I must say it was a BIG hit! I will definitely make this again!

Hi Linda, I tried that the last time and they came out a bit too salty for my taste.

I was wondering if you could use beef broth instead of the water to give it a little more flavor?
