I love Mary's quick recipes and here's one that's amazingly easy, popular and makes everyone happy:
And I don't have fancy pics today because I'm tied up at the bank this morning and working this afternoon and editing Wednesday night...
So forgive me, 'Kay????
1 lb. raw hamburger
1/2 cup uncooked rice (I use Basmati or Wild rice mix, both are delicious and great texture!)
Ruthy note: I add salt and pepper and a tablespoon of dried onion from the BIG dried onion thingamabobbie I buy at Sam's Club. And a sprinkle of granulated garlic. Other than that, this is Mary's recipe. Really. ;)
Mix together. Shape meatballs. Put in casserole dish. Expect them to look NOTHING like porcupines. Add:
Tomato Juice to cover meat/rice balls. Bake 1 hour and 15 minutes in covered casserole dish at 375 degrees. It takes every minute of that time or the rice isn't tender.
I like to serve these with grilled summer squash and zucchini. Or grilled corn. Or I just eat them by the handfuls, LOL!
