How to Make Baked Porcupine Meatballs


  1. Mix ground beef with rice, 1/2 cup of water, chopped onion, seasoned salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Save dishes and do this in the pan..
  2. shape porcupine ground beef mixture by tablespoon into 1 1/2 inch balls, and place into ungreased 9x13 baking dish. You can also press mixture into bottom of pan and using a spatula, separate into squares, leaving about 1/2 inch between the rows. Meat squares taste the same as meatballs but don't roll off the plate as easily.
