Meatballs for the Freezer
Today I made a big batch of meatballs for the freezer. I used 5lbs of hamburger and followed the recipe for hamburger veggie meatloaf that I have here: http://www.thefamilyhomestead.com/beefveggiemeatloaf.htm
I basically doubled the recipe and made a big bowl full….
I like to use my cookie scoop to make the meatballs. My scoop is 1T in size..
I scooped them out and put them on a greased jelly roll pan (actually it filled 3 jelly roll pans)…
Then baked them at 350 for 20 minutes ..
After they were baked I put them on a pizza pan to flash freeze (It filled 2 pizza pans, cookie sheets would work too). I did not want them to freeze in one big lump.
After they have frozen individually I will put them in a zip lock type bag and put them back in the freezer. Now I can take out however many I need for a meal. It’s a nice convenience to have on hand! My favorite recipe for meatballs is this one: http://www.thefamilyhomestead.com/bbqcrockpotmeatballs.htm
