I have a recipe I wanted to share that kids love - the meatballs should resemble little porcupines with grains of rice sticking out of them!

Mix all ingredients thoroughly, being sure that the uncooked rice is distributed evenly. Shape into 1 1/2-inch diameter balls and place in an oblong baking pan, leaving some space between the balls to allow rice to expand.
Whisk ketchup, cola, and garlic together in a small sauce pan. When just about boiling, remove from heat and pour over meatballs. Bake entire casserole at 375, covered, for 1 hour, 15 minutes. Remove cover and bake another 10-15 minutes until browned on top.
This recipe should serve six (depending on side dishes), but it only serves four at my house.
