Every week I try to put one or two things in the freezer for quick, easy meals later. I’ve been a little off lately, but I did manage to make a huge batch of meatballs this week. We use meatballs in lots of dishes…Spaghetti, Meatball Subs and Sweet and Sour Meatballs are favorites!
My Meatballs (one batch…I made 5 batches at once)
1 pound ground meat ( I use game meat because the hubby is a hunter and we’re used to it)
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup onion ( I used dried this time)
1/2 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste
1 t soy sauce
Mix all ingredients together until well blended.
(this is just before I added the meat)
My recipie is nothing special…you could really use any meatball recipie you love…just make lots and freeze them!
At this point I have a HUGE bowl of meat mixture.
I form them into ball shapes and put them on a lightly greased cookie sheet. I broil on high for 5-7 minutes each side and then bake at 375 for another 10-15 minutes, or until fully cooked.
I let them cool on the counter for a few minutes, and then put the whole cookie sheet into the freezer ( I have a big freezer, you may have to adapt this step).
When they are completely frozen, I put them into freezer safe bags and have easy meals, ready to go! I have enough meatballs to use for six or seven meals!
