2 Ways to make Porcupine Meatballs in the Slow Cooker

Early on in our marriage my husband requested "porcupine meatballs" for dinner.  I had never heard of them but quickly found out that they were meatballs that had rice cooked in with them.  They are the meat and the rice all in one little meatball and they taste pretty awesome!  I have two different recipes.  One that has a marinara sauce and one that has a creamy mushroom sauce.  It's up to you!  Whatever kind you like best.  Hope you enjoy these recipes for slow cooker porcupine meatballs!
