Porcupine Meatballs

My mom and I were talking the other day, and she asked if I had ever made my kids Porcupine Meatballs. I can't believe I have never made them for my kids! I grew up eating them and loving was time to introduce them, and it was a winner! Even my picky little Princess loved them!! It was time for me to share them with all of you, and if you have never made them..serious you need to! They are that good.

Here's what you'll need: 1 pound lean ground beef, 1 (6.8 oz) box Beef Rice a Roni, 1 egg, and 2 1/4 cup water

Mix together your ground beef, egg, and rice. Only use the rice from the box, save the seasoning packet for later on. Make sure you get everything mixed and combined well, don't be afraid to get your hands dirty...get them in there and mix away!

Form golf sized meatballs

Brown meatballs on top and bottom, don't worry about cooking them all the way, they will finish cooking in a minute (or 30).

Mix together water and beef seasoning mix...

...and pour over top of meatballs. Reduced heat to medium-low, bring to a simmer, cover and cook for 30 minutes, or until meatballs are cooked through and rice is soft. Most of the liquid will cook away.
