Add the egg, diced onion, salt, pepper, allspice and soaked bread crumbs. Mix together thoroughly. Shape the mixture into about 30 small meatballs. In a large skillet, melt the margarine over medium heat. Add the meatballs, about 15 at a time and saute' for about 10 minutes or until the meatballs are browned on all sides and cooked through. Place the meatballs in a bowl and set aside. Add the flour to the pan drippings in the skillet and stir until smooth. Add the beef bouillon cube and 3/4 cup boiling water. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium high heat, stirring constantly. Stir until the boullion is dissolved and the mixture is smooth. Add the half and half and the remaining 1/2 cup milk.
