Good to see kids becoming reacquainted with “porcupine” meatballs. I'm 66, and I remember my mom making these when I was a kid too. Her recipe came from an old Mirro pressure cooker (forerunner to slow cookers and exactly the opposite! Pressure cookers cook everything very quickly). I'm sure there are many versions, but one thing's for sure...kids and adults alike love this fun & easy-to-fix meal! Thanks for the trip down memory lane!
