Porcupine Balls

This is a dish that we use to eat all of the time when I was growing up. Kids usually love it because of the meatballs, and also because of the rice. It's always a little different when I make it each time because I usually adjust the recipe a little each time i make it. It's pretty easy to make as well.

1 pound ground beef
1 medium Onion chopped finely
1 cup bread crumbs (optional)
1 teaspoon onion salt
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 Cup Worcestershire sauce.
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 egg

1 cup rice (instant works really well)
1 jar spaghetti sauce
1 cup water

Mix the first 7 ingredients together, once combined form 1 1/2 inch meatballs. Place the uncooked rice in a bowl, then roll the meatballs in rice to cover them, then place them in an 8x8 baking dish side by side. Once all meatballs are in the baking dish add the extra rice on top of the meatballs. Combine the water and the spaghetti sauce and mix together, then pour over the meatballs. Cover the pan with tinfoil and bake at 375 for 1 1/2 hours or until meat balls are cooked thru and rice is tender. Serve with french bread.
