Turkey Porcupines Recipe

This is a modified meat ball recipe that mom used to make.  I’m not sure where this one originated.


  • 1 lb ground turkey or beef
  • 1 1/2t salt
  • 1/3 cup dry white rice
  • 2 cups chopped canned or cooked fresh tomatoes
  • 1t sugar
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1/2 chopped bell pepper


Mix the meat, salt and rice.   Shape into small balls and brown them in a pan with oil.

Place the meat balls in a deep casserole dish or some other oven safe container.  Mix the other ingredients and pour on top of the meat balls.   Cover and simmer in the oven for 30 to 45 minutes at 350 degrees F.
