Porcupine Meatballs

My mom made this as I was growing up, and it was always one of my favorites. I omitted some things & changed things up a bit to make them healthy.... they're delicious!

Porcupine Meatballs
8 balls/3 points each

1 pound ground turkey (I used 93/7)
1/2 c. uncooked rice (I used white, but brown is good too!)
2 small cans (or 1 big can) FF cream of mushroom soup
Seasonings (I used minced garlic & pepper... no salt needed, the soup has enough in it!)

1. In a mixing bowl, combine the ground turkey, rice, and seasonings. Use your hands to mix these ingredients together until very well mixed.
2. Form 8 balls and place in a glass baking dish coated w/cooking spray.
3. Cover the meatballs with the mushroom soup.
4. Cook, uncovered, in a 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes. I like to cut the biggest meatball down the middle to make sure they're done.

My mom used to also make these with tomato soup. I don't like tomato soup, so I don't make it this way, but you could change things up a bit to make it however you liked things! Just be sure to adjust points if necessary!

These look great! Do you add any water to the soup?

I have been known to cook Chicken Breasts in soup as a sauce, just fab!
