I followed the directions precisely, and the rice stayed just as crunch as it was when I poured it out of the box. My family ate it the first night, then refused to touch it again. Next time I'll try preparing the rice before adding it, if my family will give it another chance.

This was so good! Reminded me of a dish my mom made with rice and beef and she called them Porcupine Balls. It was a Sunday Dinner hit!


This was a nice change from my regular meat loaf. The rice added a nice texture. There wasn't a lot of flavor though and next time I think I will add some additional spice to give it a little more kick. Also, some of my rice on the edges got crunchy. This may be because I didn't bake it in a loaf pan. If I do make again I will try a loaf pan to see if it helps. My husband and 14 month old both seemed to like it a lot and neither noticed the crunch rice.
