Best Porcupine Turkey Meatballs

 

Porcupine (turkey & rice) Meatballs

These delicious meatballs are not in the same category of regular Italian meatballs that go great with spaghetti (although these could.) Porcupine meatballs are in more of a comfort food/ meatloaf category. If you like, you could serve them with pasta, regular egg noodles, or (the way we prefer them) with mashed potatoes!

Notes

 

Coconut Flour Bread

Because coconut flour has no gluten in it, it does not make a great cold sandwich bread. However,  grilled cheeses, patty melts, and paninis work perfect!  This bread is very thick and grainy (which I love because it is a meal in itself- slathered in butter and jam!) Unfortunately, it doesn’t stay together well in the toaster, so, I suggest warming up a piece in a buttered skillet.
