Porcupine Meatballs


“Growing up this was my absolute favourite recipe that my Mom made, although she made them in a pressure cooker. This easy to do version here is for the stovetop. The extra sauce is great for pouring over a side dish of mashed potatoes as well! Memories from my childhood! Comfort food at its best!” -Geoff😎
