Porcupine Meatballs

I loved it when I was a child and my mom made porcupine meatballs . . . I thought it was the coolest thing how the rice made the meatballs look like little porcupines once they were cooked . . . these are a great little appetizer for a holiday party. Once the meatballs are baked you can transfer them to a crock pot to simmer in the sauce as well.Porcupine MeatballsRecipe by: Emily
2 lbs Ground Beef
3/4 cup Rice
1 cup of Water
1 small Onion, minced
2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Dry Mustard

Sauce:1 can Tomato Soup
2 8 oz cans Tomato Sauce
3-4 Tbsp Brown Sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce

1. Combine ground beef, rice, onion, salt, pepper, garlic powder, dry mustard and 1 cup of water together. Make into 2 inch meatballs and place in a baking dish. Pour 1 cup of water into the bottom of the pan. Cover dish tightly with tin foil and bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 45 minutes.

I love these. They are so cute and fun. I made them once for my husband and he didn't like them (he actually said he would be happy if we never ate them again. haha!)
This looks like a different recipe though, I wonder if I could make it if it's a different recipe. (You're looks much more flavorful.)
