Porcupine Meatballs With a Twist

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Annick 2

A delicious one pot meatball meal with rice and stuffed with cubes of Velveeta cheese, simmered in a tomato-Worcestershire sauce. I copied and adapted this recipe from an old french canadian booklet over 35 years ago and it's still a favorite in our house. Its a meal in itself but I always serve it with a fresh chef salad and mashed potatoes.

Tasty comfort food! I used to make this in a pressure cooker MANY years ago. I made one-half the recipe with ground pork, and extra sharp cheddar cubes. Made for Preemie Adoption, Spring PAC 2012.
