Basic Freezer Meatballs

Vicki Butts (lazyme)


This is a simple but handy recipe for freezer meatballs. Meatballs, in and of themselves, are very simple but they can be used in so many different ways. Now and then I like to make a large batch of meatballs so I can use them to make several different meals or appetizers.

How to Make Basic Freezer Meatballs

  4. Place meatballs in a single layer on a baking sheet or in a 9 x 13 pan.
