You won't believe how easy it is to make these beefy, stuffed Rice Balls in your muffin tin. Your gang is gonna love the fun shape and the cheesy, meaty surprise inside!

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef
  • 3/4 cup spaghetti sauce
  • 3/4 cup ricotta cheese
  • 3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 cups cooked white rice
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • Cooking spray

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown beef; drain off any excess liquid. Remove from heat and stir in spaghetti sauce, ricotta and mozzarella cheeses, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper; mix well.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine cooked rice and Parmesan cheese; mix well.
  4. Place 1 heaping tablespoon of the rice mixture into each muffin cup. Using the back of a spoon, make an indentation in each mound of rice and evenly fill with meat mixture. Top evenly with  remaining rice, forming a mound on each. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and coat with cooking spray.
  5. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until heated through and tops are golden. Using a large spoon, remove each rice ball from the muffin tin and serve.
