Porcupine Meatballs

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by HannahSve

NOT made with porcupine meat. :) The ground beef and rice mixture makes them look porcupine-y. A hit with kids! This version is a little sweeter and can be cooked 3 ways! (Cooking time is for skillet. Crock Pot and Oven times vary.)

These were good, but I though the sauce was a little bland. I will try the meatballs again with a different sauce. Reviewed for Spring PAC 2010.
