Make-Ahead Freezer Meatballs

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by pianomom

A wonderful all-purpose meatball to use in a variety of recipes! Easy to make, and with ingredients usually on hand. The yield is based on 1-1/2" meatballs, but you can make them smaller. I get about forty-eight 1" meatballs out of this same recipe.

These are good meatballs. My only complaint is how dense they are. I am not very experienced making meatballs, so this could be my fault! I added some red pepper and some fresh parsley & rosemary that I had on hand. I doubled the batch and froze most of them. Thanks!
