Porcupine Meatballs

This is a family favorite that my mom made when I was younger. I now make it all the time for my own family!

1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef (although, I always use ground turkey.)
2/3 cup rice
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon pepper
15 ounce tomato soup
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

Mix ground meat with rice, water, onion, seasoned salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Shape into 1 1/2 inch balls.

Place meatballs in ungreased baking dish. Mix soup and Worcestershire sauce and pour over meatballs. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake for 15 more minutes.

*When I don't have enough time, I will use my electric frying pan to cook them. I brown the meatballs first then add the sauce and cover. Once I have added the sauce, it usually only takes about 20-30 minutes. Cook covered until the meat is cook all the way through!


  1. Yum! I love porcupine meatballs! But my mom always cooked them on the stove, and mine always fall apart when I do that and make a terrible mess. I am definitely going to try baking them. Thanks!

  2. Those look yummy! I'll be adding them to our menu soon. Thanks for posting.
