Having the 17yearoldboy sense of humor I do, how could you not love a recipe w/Balls in the title? These have been on my to try list since the first time I saw them mentioned on the Buzz, but have just now gotten around to giving them a whirl. I made them in 3 steps, browning the meat/garlic/onions one evening, boiling the rice & combining the ingredients & forming the balls the next, and rolling in egg/crumbs and baking the third. The only changes I made were to use 2 lbs of ground beef with all other ingredients remaining the same, brown rice for white because it's what I had on hand, and Italian panko fore bread crumbs. I also added some Italian seasoning and crushed red pepper to the mix. We really enjoyed the crisp on the balls (baking time was pretty spot on, for me, though I'd imagine the panko helped). The dipping sauce really makes this, so use a good sauce. I'm looking forward to reinventing this for a take on stuffed peppers! THANKS for sharing your dad's (rice) balls w/us, QUEENBEE!
