Meatballs and Spanish Rice

I found this recipe in Whole Foods for the Whole Family cookbook.  I’ve done a little altering to it though.  First, it calls for brown rice, which I swear I bought, but is nowhere to be found in my pantry.  So I subbed white rice.

The method for making this involves baking the raw meatballs on top of the rice.  Because of this, you’re going to need to use very lean meat or else the dish will be too greasy.  I’ve made it before with ground bison.  This time I used some of the 88 meatballs I made and froze.  I froze some of them raw, specifically to use in this dish.  A quick thaw in the microwave was all they needed.  It sped up the prep work a lot to start with the meatballs already made.
