Just like Hubby's Grandma made, Member ja1441

I've been trying for quite a while to make Porcupine Meatballs like my Hubby's Grandmother used to make. Made it tonight and he said ""Grandma would have liked this"". Am I thrilled! It was delish! Thanks for posting the recipe, which I will make again!
