Rice-A-Roni Beef Porcupines

This is a recipe that my work BFF Christie had been talking about for months.  Her old college roomie used to make it for her.  When I heard the ingredients and the directions, I was a little weirded out by the concept, but I decided to try it out.  One night she came over for dinner and we made these delicious balls of goodness.   I will say now that this recipe is a keeper and one that I had to share with all of you.  Another great thing about this recipe is that all you need to serve with it is a veggie of your choice because the other side dish is baked inside.  Hope you enjoy!

Beef Porcupines


1 (6.8-ounce) package RICE-A-RONI® Beef Flavor

1 pound ground beef or ground turkey
