Porcupine Balls-American- Native American

Tonight we had Porcupine Balls, Mixed Vegetabes, Tossed Salad and Italian Bread.

This is an American Indian recipe that has been changed using more modern foods to prepare it. We used the bread to soak up the tomato soup sauce. It only took about 20 minutes to make it. The rice in the meatballs stick out resembling Porcupines. Children like it!!!

1 pound lean ground beef
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup instant rice
1/2 medium onion, grated
1 teaspoon fresh garlic, grated
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1. Place the ground beef in a large bowl.
2. Mix in the egg, rice onion, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper.
