    Porcupine Meatballs

    Porcupine Meatballs are a fun twist on a traditional meatball recipe. These tasty meatballs are made with ground beef, rice, onion and seasonings then baked in a rich tomato sauce. So zesty and delicious, and ready in only an hour!

    Porcupine Meatballs are similar to a classic meatball recipe, only with rice added to the meat mixture before cooking. When the rice sticks out, these meatballs resemble a little ‘porcupine’. I personally love the texture that the rice gives these meatballs. It makes them so soft, tender and juicy all the way through!

        •    Cook time: 1 hour
        •    Yield: Serves 4

        •    1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
        •    1 egg


        •    1 can (10 oz) condensed tomato soup undiluted
        •    1 cup vegetable juice
        •    1 cup tomato sauce
        •    1/2 tsp garlic powder
        •    chopped parsley, for garnish
        •    salt and pepper, to taste


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    2. In a large bowl, mix ground beef, rice, onion, garlic powder, parsley, worcestershire, egg, salt, and pepper until just combined.
    3. Shape the mixture into approximately 20 balls. Place in a baking dish, approximately 2qt.
    4. Combine all ingredients for the sauce and pour over meatballs.
    5. Bake for uncovered 1 hour. Garnish with parsley, salt, and pepper. Serve over rice or mashed potatoes.

    Cajun Meatballs

    Love meatballs? Try this low-calorie recipe that uses turkey mince, served in a hot pepper sauce

    Prep Time

        •    Prep time: 15 minutes
        •    Cook time: 35 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 4


        •    2 tbsps butter
        •    2 tbsps plain flour
        •    1 onion, finely chopped
        •    1 green pepper, deseeded and finely chopped
        •    2 celery sticks, finely chopped
        •    2 garlic cloves, chopped
        •    1 bay leaf
        •    400g can plum tomato
        •    1 chicken stock cube
        •    dash of Tabasco sauce or hot pepper sauce
        •    4 spring onions, finely sliced
        •    handful coriander, roughly chopped
        •    rice or mash, to serve

    For the Meatballs:

        •    1 tbsp Cajun seasoning
        •    500g pack turkey mince
        •    1 tbsp vegetable oil


    1. Put the butter in a pan over a low heat. Stir in the flour and cook, stirring all the time to make a roux. Cook until the roux is hazelnut brown in colour – make sure that it doesn’t burn. Tip in the vegetables, garlic and bay leaf, stir briefly, then pour in the tomatoes and 1½ cans of water. Crumble in the stock cube, add the hot sauce, then cover and cook for 15 mins, stirring occasionally, while you make the meatballs.
    2. Work the spice and some seasoning into the turkey mince. Try not to over-handle or it will toughen. Shape into 20 meatballs.
    3. Heat the oil in a large non-stick pan and quickly brown the meatballs in batches until they are nicely coloured on all sides.
    4. Stir the sauce, then drop in the meatballs and cook on a low heat for 10 mins until the turkey is cooked through. Scatter over the spring onions and coriander, and serve with some rice or mash.
