Easy Baked Appetizer Meatballs

I chose the Brown Minute® Rice to be the starting ingredient in my Easy Baked Appetizer Meatballs recipe. If you like the nutty, rich flavor of brown rice, Minute 100% Whole Grain Brown Rice is a delicious, nutritious option, as it has the same nutritional values as regular long cooking brown rice, but is ready in just 10 minutes, – just ¼ the time of regular brown rice. Both Minute® Brown and White Rice are gluten free, too.

I am dying to try the new Minute® Multi-Grain Medley! It is the newest product from Minute® Rice with a blend of four gluten-free foods and made with 100% whole grains, including long grain brown rice, Thai red rice, wild rice and quinoa and it conveniently cooks in 10 minutes. I want to try the recipe with this next time.

  1. Those look like a great appetizer I can take to a New Year’s Ever party I am going to. Those little toothpicks are cute too!

  2. I love that you added the Brown Minute® Rice,! That makes the meat stretch farther but also adds a great flavor and texture!
