Easy & Tasty Porcupine Balls

Martha Price


This is one of the very few recipes I managed to learn as a teenager - I wasn't very interested in cooking at the time! It is super easy to prepare and always tastes great. It can be tinkered with to your taste (I sometimes add a dash or two of Worcestershire sauce to the soup, or chopped parsley to the meatballs), but it is quite tasty as is, and an easy recipe for beginning cooks!
