You can never had enough meal ideas that are ready to go right? We love having these make ahead meatballs in our freezer because they are fast, ready to go, and leave you with plenty of possibilities. Since they are already pre-cooked you can throw them in the slow cooker with various sauces and make an easy meal, or you can simply heat up and eat! We like ours warmed up on top of pasta with a simple sauce. Here's how I make them up and store them.

Start by mixing up your meatball mix. Any meatball will work! I generally do a basic hamburger, garlic powder, minced onion, and salt. You can also always add breadcrumbs or oatmeal to make your meat stretch further.

Form your meatballs (or somewhat meatball shaped balls!) Place them in any baking dish or cookie tray with sides. You will not need to grease the pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, stir around the meatballs or flip them over to another side. Bake for another 15 minutes.

Let the meatballs cool and then package them for the freezer. You can either put them in individual meal serving size bags or one large freezer bag where you can just take out the ones you need.
