Porcupine Balls


1 pound hamburger
4 slices of bread
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
1-2 Tbsp dried parsley
1/8 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp dried oregano (or may use Italian seasoning blend) (optional)
2 medium sized onions, diced
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup uncooked rice
1 tsp salt
2 cups tomato juice - or more

Crumble bread and soak in milk.  Add beaten egg. Mix other ingredients (except tomato juice). Shape into 8 balls and place in greased casserole dish. Pour tomato juice over the balls and bake covered 1 1/2 hours in 350 degree oven. These balls may also be cooked in a pressure cooker/saucepan for 15 minutes or in a greased slow cooker for 6-8 hours on low (put on high for the first 1/2 if possible).

You may also substitute spaghetti sauce in place of the tomato juice.
