Easy One Dish Meatball Rice Dinner


* 1 lb. ground beef (you can also use 1/2 ground pork, 1/2 beef)
* 1/2 tsp. garlic
* 1/2 tsp. oregano
* 1/2 tsp. salt
* dash pepper
* nice squirt (about 2 Tbsp) ketchup
* 1 egg

Anything else you have on hand: parmesan cheese is good, bread crumbs, leftover oatmeal or rice, a bit of shredded mozzarella, grated carrots or potatoes, a dash of Worcestershire or tamari/soy sauce, etc. Meatballs are very forgiving!

* 1 cup brown rice
* 2 cups water
* 1/2 tsp salt

* 1/2 cup chicken or beef broth


Preheat oven to 350. Feeds 4-6 depending on their ages and appetites.

Combine the rice, salt and water in a saucepan and cook 40 minutes (rice won't be completely cooked...that's ok)

Assemble the meatballs.

Put the rice in the bottom of a greased baking dish. Pour the chicken broth over rice. Place meatballs on top and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for approximately 30-45 minutes or until meatballs are thoroughly cooked.

Serve with something green like a romaine salad or braised greens. Enjoy!


Here is a super easy, quick one dish meatball recipe. The rice and meatballs can be prepared early in the day (when baby is happy LOL!) and then the casserole assembled later.
