      Love love love these!!! Five strong stars! I added a bit of the breadcrumbs to hold mine together better, and they were simply delicious! I am making a second batch in the oven for my "fry-conscious" vegetarian daughters. I heavily sprayed the baking dish with olive oil, and drizzled more on the top. They look great! Thanks so much for sharing this - it is sure to be a family favorite.

      I made this for my 19month old girls as they love rice but can't really eat it yet without it being all over the floor and them :-) I baked them at 360 for 20 minutes or so... Once the breadcrumbs got brown. I just don't know how you can get 36 balls out of the recipe. I think I got 16!!!! I even ask my husband if mine were too large but he said that they were 1 in. maybe slightly larger, but not signifcantly bigger to explain the discrepancy in the count :-)

      Very nice, but like an earlier reviewer reported the quantity seems to be way off -- I couldn't make more than from it, definitely not 36.
