Mini Rice Balls with Eggs and Cheese

Mini Rice Balls with Eggs and Cheese are a fun finger food for the whole family. Just serve these with our Mom's Quick Marinara Sauce for dipping and watch as they vanish!  Italian mini rice balls are made with tender rice, eggs, cheese, butter and parsley, then gently fried in oil until golden brown. Yummy!
I haven't made these in a while, and since my family was in the mood for an appetizer (also the big game is on today- Jets vs Giants!) I decided to make them and revive this recipe from our archives.

Roasted Thanksgiving Turkey

Cooking a whole turkey for Thanksgiving can be intimidating or even overwhelming for some of us cooks. But when it comes down to doing it, my husband does it best. Nothing fancy to his method, just a simple and easy prep to clean and stuff the turkey and into the oven it goes. Slow roasting the turkey is super simple and super easy!
