Ii didnt know that anyone knew about porcupine meatballs. I thought that was something my mom made up when I was a kid. I LOVE IT. She makes it with chopped up bell peppers too. She serves it with slaw and yeast rolls......OMG ITS GOOD.
So good! We used turkey and it was the best low calorie meal! We will make again very soon!
Made some changes based on what I had on hand. I was craving a comfort food, but didn't feel like making meatloaf. I've made these at least once before, but don't remember where I got the recipe from, so when I found these porcupines on Z'aar, I decided to try them again. My package of ground turkey was 1 1/4 lbs, and I used long grain white rice, just over 1/2 cup. I used more like 1/3 of a cup of diced fresh onion, used 1 8 ounce can of tomato sauce, and 1 8 ounce can of tomato sauce with garlic, basil, and oregano, plus maybe 13 ounces of water. Used a dash or two more than a T of worceshire, kept salt the same amount. I also added a bit of black pepper and 1 tsp of jarred minced garlic (approx 2 cloves worth) I cooked the full 1 1/2 hours. Most of the rice was cooked, but some of it was still crunchy. It was still really tasty though. Had this over white rice. Bf enjoyed this also. Thank you jswinks! :)
Thought these were great. I didn't have any Worcestershire sauce, so I used a splash of soy sauce and Tabasco instead. Worked out fine.
I have made these before, and they are really good.I made them with white rice, but I have to use brown rice now. If you've never tried these, you'll love them.
