3/4 c. milk (.15)
1/2 c. rice (.05)
1 lb. ground beef (2.54)
1 t baking powder
salt and pepper to taste (.25 for all?)
Combine milk and rice in saucepan; bring to boil. Simmer until milk is absorbed. Add meat, onion, baking powder, salt and pepper to taste. Mix thoroughly. Roll into small balls. (This is the part where E says, "Eww. I don't like this on my hands. I don't want to help you anymore. Can we just eat chips?") Place in baking dish (I put half in a casserole with a glass lid and half on a cookie sheet with aluminum foil - I definitely reccomend the cookie sheet); cover. Bake at 350°F for 20 to 30 minutes.
This recipe is from the "Caring and Cooking for the Hyper-Active Child." I don't own this book, but I probably should.
We served this with leftover baked beans (?), peas (.45), and a couple of tortilla chips, as requested (.05).
Total cost: $3.49
Verdict: Pretty good. It was a little bland for me, so I dipped the meatballs in some (local!) barbeque sauce.
