This is a great, versatile make-ahead recipe. I often double the batch and freeze dinner-sized portions to use later in spaghetti sauce, Swedish meatballs, and bbq meatball subs. They can also be made smaller for appetizers.

How to Make Baked Meatballs

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line baking dishes with aluminum foil (optional, for easier clean-up).
