Porcupine Meatballs

Shirley Murtagh


Another really good recipe that I have been making for years. My son really loved them as a kid and still does. He makes them now for my grandchildren.
Again this super easy recipe comes from the "Better Homes and Gardens" cookbook c1969
I have added one extra ingredient to this recipe "garlic cloves" Please give it a try. Great with baked potatoes. Oh yes, I still make this recipe today for my husband and I.
