Porcupine Meatball Recipe

This variation on the classic meatball includes brown rice to give the meatballs a "porcupine" look and texture. Great for kids!


250 grams ground turkey
250 grams ground beef
1/2 cup brown rice, uncooked
1/4 cup onion, diced
2 cups tomato sauce
2 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In large bowl, combine turkey, beef, rice, and onion.

Roll into 1 inch balls and place evenly in deep, oven-proof baking tray.

In separate bowl, combine tomato sauce and Worcestershire sauce.

Pour into tray over meatballs so that they are almost covered.

Bake covered for 1.5-2 hours, stirring occasionally to make sure meatballs stay almost covered.

Serve with spaghetti or pasta of your choosing.
