They look like baby oranges when finished, hence the name Arrancini -little orange in Italian.
To make, you need the following ingredients:
Drain on paper towels and giggle at how your son calls these Matzo Balls, Rice a Roni and just plain yummy. They really are exactly that. I think these could make even a PB and J sandwich seem like a rather dressed up dinner !
