Mimi was given a cookbook "Gardeners' Gourmet" which was published by The Garden Clubs of Mississippi. The book was published 1970. We have been using one recipe for years and today I am sharing.

PORCUPINE MEAT BALLS

1 lb. ground beef
1/2 cup uncooked rice
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 onion
1/2 green pepper
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 1/2 cups of V-8

Slice pepper and onion and set aside. Combine rice, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Using a fork, I spread the ground beef in another bowl. Then I add the rice mixture and thoroughly mix the ingredients together form the mixture into 1 1/2 inch balls. Place the balls into a baking dish. I use a 3 quart dish with lid. Mix the Worcestershire sauce with the V-8. Place the sliced peppers and onions on top of the meat balls, then pour the V-8 mixture. Put covered dish into a 350 degree oven and cook for one hour.
The kitty justice is like all recipes I use, I have changed a couple ingredients to suit my taste. Afterwards you will lick your whiskers and say "Meow."

Sounds like a good recipe. I have a similar one but will try yours. Don't the older cookbooks have the best recipes. My Betty Crocker from 1957 is great. My Mother bought me the New Betty Crocker one a few years ago and all the good recipes were gone or "modernized" Not Good. MB

I agree with you the old cookbooks are heads above the new ones. I hope you will enjoy the twitting of the recipe. Peace
