Porcupine Meatballs

2 pounds lean ground beef
2/3 cup uncooked long-grain rice
1 egg
1/2 cup chopped onion (or Onion Powder for those picky eaters)
1/2 cup water
salt and pepper
1-2 Cups Prepared Spaghetti Sauce
(For cooking you will need an extra jar of spaghetti sauce and extra cooked rice- enough for meal)

Combine the ground beef, uncooked rice, onion, egg with salt and pepper. Mix well then add in slowly some spaghetti sauce. Only add enough spaghetti sauce so that you can still shape the meat into balls and they won't fall apart. Save any remaining sauce.

Put in Freezer safe container side by side or Flash freeze and place in Freezer Bag. Store in the freezer up to 2 months.

Two Options for sauce: First option is to put the sauce in with the frozen meatballs and freeze together. Then just defrost together and add to pan and continue with Cooking Directions. Option 2 is to freeze the meatballs separately from the sauce and add in the sauce when you are ready to cook.

Defrost. Place meatballs in a skillet and cover with spaghetti sauce. Cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes or until meatballs are cooked thoroughly. Serve over white rice and garnish with green beans.
