Tip: Freezing Meatballs

To freeze meatballs, place them on a cookie sheet until frozen. Place in plastic bags. They will stay separated so that you may remove as many as you want.

Question: Making Meatballs for the Freezer

I would like to obtain a recipe and instructions for meatballs that you can prepare and freeze to be used in multiple ways, like spaghetti, sandwiches, etc. I was told about a preparation method involving pressing the meat in a pan, cutting into smaller squares, and rolling each smaller square into a meatball. Anyone have any idea of what I am talking about here? Sounds like a very timesaving idea for busy families!

Thank you!

Question: Making Meatballs to Freeze

When I make meatballs I use ground beef, veal, and pork plus I use eggs, Italian bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, a splash of olive oil and garlic. I would like to know if I can freeze this mixture with the raw eggs. It would surely save me time if I could make the meatballs at one time and freeze for future meals. Basically, my question is, "Can you freeze raw eggs into a meat mixture?"

Yes you can, but you must be very careful to defrost them in the fridge and not out on the counter.
