Oven Baked Porcupine Meatballs

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Olha7397

You can make the meatballs ahead of time and freeze. Then simply remove from the freezer, add the remaining ingredients and bake. Double this recipe for a buffet company meal or camping trip. So easy to make as there’s no need to brown the meatballs in the skillet—saves time and bother.

My mother made these for us when we were young. I love them over mashed potatoes. I always add a beef bullion cube to 1/2 cup hot water, then mix with the tomato soup. Very good comfort food!
