Budget Rice-A-Roni Meatballs

Budget  Rice-A-Roni Meatballs created by Chef shapeweaver

This recipe makes the gravy from the seasoning packet included in the Rice-a-Roni, so there's no additional expense for the gravy. Got to make a dollar holler! :)

    I'm sorry but this was not to my liking. I made as directed (excepted added a bit of finely diced onion and garlic for flavor). By the time the meatballs finished simmering all the water had been absorbed and there was only about a tablespoon of thick liquid remaining. Nothing left to make a "gravy" from with the cornstarch slurry. The meatballs themselves were tasteless and dry.

    I'm not going to select any stars. This recipe did not work for me. It is very puzzling because I see that Chef Shapeweaver thoroughly enjoyed it. I keep thinking the meat/pasta/rice mixture needs more liquid that just the one egg. Our meatballs turned out extremely dry and "gummy". I hope others will try this -- I would very interested in knowing what their experience was. Thank you for posting the recipe.
