Don't worry, they aren't really made out of porcupines. That would be gross.
What you need:
a pound of 93/7 lean hamburger, thawed
between 1/2 to 2/3 cup of white rice, uncooked
salt and pepper
medium can of tomato sauce (about 14 or 16 oz; not the teeny 6 or 8 oz ones or the large 29 ish oz ones)
minced onions (optional)
garlic powder (optional)
In a large bowl, add the rice, salt and pepper, minced onions, garlic powder, and a very generous dash of worchestershire sauce. Add the hamburger. Mix well (it's really (and slightly gross) easy to mix evenly if you use your (clean) hands. Form into 12 meatballs. Wash your hands well. Pour the can of tomato sauce over the meatballs. Cover pan with foil and bake at 325 for an hour or so, until hamburger is done and the rice is soft. Serve with rice or alone.
