Good to make ahead and freeze. I got this from somewhere, but I don't remember where. If this is your recipe, let me know and I'll be glad to credit you.

This recipe was very similar to one in my betty crocker cook book. I used 1 cup brown rice cooked in 2 cups beef broth for the cooked rice. Next time I wouldn't roll the rice balls in wheat germ. The wheat germ has a strong flavor that I don't like. Maybe roll them in whole wheat flour or corn meal. I will be making this again. I think it's a good lower calorie alternative to meat balls.
