Linda's Fantabulous Porky-Pine Meatballs
75 mins (prep 15, cooking 60)
12 ingredients
6-8 servings
There are so many recipes for Porcupine Meatballs so I thought I would throw in my 2 cents worth in. Porcupine Meatballs got their name because of using the proper rice. If you use long grain or instant or converted you won't get the 'Porcupine' surprise. I recommend a short grain rice and specifically I use Cal Rose brand. I think an Aborio would work as well. I give the rice a rinse in a mesh colander before mixing the meatballs. This is a recipe every kid loves, including DH, the biggest kid of all. Try both variations and then try your own combination to come up with what your family likes best.
