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.
