Meatballs for Stocking up Freezer

Total Time

Make and add to various recipes... like tator tots, drained green beans, and cream of mushroom soup. We love that and so easy! Meatballs are good with leftover beef gravy and mashed potatoes, too. I freeze portions in separate zip lock bags, defrost, and have an easy supper. I am guessing at the exact servings-I can eat 5 or 6 meatballs. I use my oven to brown my meatballs-lazy me- but you can do it on top of your stove if you prefer. And if you want to make a sauce -try 1 envelope brown gravy mix made up, mix in 1/2 cup sour cream, and dash each of nutmeg and pepper.

I made this recipe exactly as listed and it's great! They are not greasy at all - I used low fat pork and lean ground beef. I used a cookie dough scoop and made 112 meatballs! These are going to be used in spaghetti and meatballs tonight and 3 more meals for the 4 of us in the future. Made for Went To The Market tag game. Thanks WiGal! :)
