Meat.central's picture
  Camembert cheese/Liederkranz 2 Ounce, chilled
  Butter/Margarine 2 Tablespoon
  Coarsely chopped onion 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Boneless fully cooked ham 1 Pound, ground
  Boneless lean pork 1⁄2 Pound
  Dry bread crumbs 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Milk 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Eggs 2
  All purpose flour 2 Tablespoon
  Water 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Dry white wine 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Chicken seasoned stock/1 chicken bouillon cube 1 Teaspoon

Using a paring knife, scrape and discard the thin outside crust from the cheese; set cheese aside.
In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, melt the butter; add the onion and saute until golden (about 4 minutes).
Remove from heat and, with a slotted spoon, transfer onions to a bowl; reserve butter in pan.
Add to the onions the ham, pork, milk, bread crumbs, and eggs.
Mix together with your hands until blended.
Shape into 1-inch balls and set about 1 inch apart on greased, rimmed baking pans.
Bake in a 500° oven, turning if needed to brown well on all sides (about 7 to 10 minutes).
Spoon into a small serving bowl and keep warm while you make sauce.
Stir the flour into reserved butter; stir over medium-high heat until bubbly.
Remove from heat and gradually stir in water and wine.
Add chicken stock base and cook, stirring, until the mixture boils and thickens; remove from heat.
Add cheese (cut in small pieces) and stir until it melts.
Pour into another serving bowl and keep warm with the meatballs.
