When I make meatballs I usually make large batch and freeze some for a quick meal later.

3 or 4 lbs hamburger

1 1/2 oatmeal or dry bread crumbs

1/2 to 3/4 c. finely chopped onions

no salt added (no salt for me)

red peper flakes to taste

1 to 2 c. V8 or tomatoe juice -enough to hold the mixture together.

Mix well, form meatballs, put on a cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 to 375

15 to 30 min - depending on the size of the meatballs.

Use what you want in your sauce and the extras,

when cool put on a clean cookie sheet - freeze

When frozen put in freezer bags and use when you need them.
