Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Delicious! I quadrupled the recipe to make 4 meals of 25 meatballs each. (Family of 4, 5 meatballs each). Substituted a 50/50 mix of cooked brown rice and raw rolled oats for the quick brown rice. Suggest some salt and extra mustard in the meat mix for extra flavor. Freezes well--very convenient!
I hadn't heard of porcupine meatballs till the last several years. I use 4% fat beef, stoneground mustard and pureed unsalted stewed tomatoes. Thanks for a great recipe!
I always play around with recipes but this one needed very little tweaking. I used different seasoning and add splenda to the meatballs instead of brown sugar to the sauce. I also make my own sauce rather than using just a can of tomato sauce. We love the meatballs tho :)
This sounds great and easy so I will definetly try it. It kinda reminds me of sweedish meatballs but with less calories.
Haven't made these in years, but always loved them. Now with dietary restrictions of my husband & me, I will use 1/2 93% lean beef & 1/2 ground WHITE turkey. I also often boil meatballs & discard the water. It serves 2 purposes: REALLY helps meatballs hold together and further reduces fat!
1 egg, pre-cooked rice and being sure to brown the meatballs well before adding sauce will help hold these together. I also make a version of "Swedish" meatballs with rice using 1/2 beef-1/2 turkey, onion, parsley, nutmeg, allspice and brown sauce made of lo-fat, lo-sodium beef broth.
This is an "oldie" but "goodie"!!!. Never used the mustard and sugar before--interesting and tasty.
This was so good. My family is already asking for it again. I took advice of another and served over spaghetti squash (a first for me) it was great! My mom used to make a version of this, probally full of fat.
my dad used to make this all the time.
the nutrition info isnt entirely accurate since you are supposed to make 20 meatballs and it serves six.. it doesn't divide out evenly.
good recipe though.
I used ground turkey, omited the sugar. Very Good.
My mom would use gravy which she defatted for fewer calories. Basic meatballs are great with any sauce!
a lot of sugar in this. I prefer savor flavour instead of sweet. And what about turkey instead of beef?
Sugar, mustard and rice in a meatball...sounds interesting.
I don't like mustard! So I will try it without the mustard or sugar. Might try with regular brown rice -- just soaked first to soften it up.
Just like mom used to make but without the fat!
Used turkey and no sugar. Delicious!!!
Haven't made this yet but I am going to use ground turkey. When I use ground turkey the fat and calories decrease, the flavor is great and I find them easier to digest.
This is a terrific easy recipe and taste's delicious! Substitute reg brown sugar w/splenda and you save a few calories!
