Grandma made these when I was growing up and when I got married, she gave me the recipe. I doubled her recipe so I can put some of the meatballs in the freezer for my son to make when I have meetings for work in the evenings. These are very basic porcupines. You can put whatever sauce over the top if you like your meatballs with gravy. The prep time is however long it takes you to mix and make the meatballs. The bake time is per batch.

How to Make Grandma's Plain Old Porcupines

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix all ingredients in large bowl. Form into golf ball size balls. Place on 11x15x1 baking sheet. Bake 20 minutes at 400--check after 20 minutes to see if they are done. You may need to bake them a couple minutes more.
  2. Let cool and package in freezer bags--I put about a dozen to a gallon ziplock. Place in freezer until ready to use.
