Porcupine Meatballs

My grandma would invite me over for dinner when I was in high school as a way to stay close to her grandkids. She asked for requests, and I always wanted these meatballs. She always served it with mashed potatoes and peas, and I would go ga-ga over them. Now that I know how easy they are to make, I still go ga-ga when I make them.

Here are the meatballs before the sauce'n....See the "porcupine" rice flecks? Genius recipe namers, these people.

I always think of my Grandma when I make these and the nice visits we had during those dinners. Hope you enjoy!
