I love that you give two different ways to make the porcupines. My mom used to make these when I was a kid and we loved having them. What do you serve yours with? We used to put a side of buttered broccoli or green beans on the side if we did not have fresh salad.

I have a handwritten recipe for porcupine meatballs that my aunt gave me twenty-five years ago. It used ground beef and was an oven dish. It was good, but this version looks healthier and I would prefer to make the meatballs in the slow cooker. I would serve these as a main dish, and skip the pasta for a change.

I just stumbled on this recipe, and was so surprised! My Mom made this when I was a kid. No doubt, I will be trying this soon for my own family. I will use tomato soup instead of that his how my Mom made it. Thanks for this recipe!

Can anyone tell me how many meatballs this yields? It says it serves 5 but how many for each person? Thanks

I would have given this five stars, but the recipe calls for a cup of milk to be added to the meat mixture and this is way entirely too much! But I found out the hard way. I didn't want all of it to go to waste, so I kept adding bread crumbs until the mixture was enough of a consistency to shape into very soft balls. However, they do taste wonderful! But really, someone should change the amount of milk noted in the recipe to 1/2 cup, not 1 cup.

I make a simular dish but use tomato soup instead just as good.. Also you can use ground turkey for a healthier version

I tried to add the recipe to my recipe box and open it from there, but the recipe was not delivered to my recipe box . . . only advertisements and a loop back to the original photo of the dish . . .

This website does not allow a subscriber to access the recipe for Slow Cooker Porcupine Meatballs. This is not the first time the website has denied access and frustrated my attempts to learn from its resources. I am sorely disappointed.
