Easy Homemade Meatballs

homemade meatballs


It was only a few months ago I started making meatballs from scratch.  I have NO idea why I waited so long.

Meatballs are EASY.

And the part I love most about meatballs?  You can freeze them for later … you can bake them for a crispy texture … you can cook them in the crock-pot for a scrumptious after-work dinner.

They’re versatile.

I made two batches of these while at my mom’s last week; one set (for my sister with the new, beautiful baby girl) was divided into about three meals and frozen.  The other set made two meals for my mom, dad and all the grandkids who were staying with them.

This week, I’m making a batch for our freezer — having them and my freezer spaghetti sauce on hand makes our pasta nights a piece of cake!

    I always make big batches of meatballs too. I normally use the recipe from the “Don’t Panic- Dinner’s in the Freezer” cookbook, but I think I’ll give this one a try. Thanks for sharing!

    Yum! I usually only use beef but I love the idea of doing a mixture of turkey as well. Hubby hates when I use ground turkey but I wonder if he would even notice when it is 50/50. Great recipe!

      My hubby is the same way. I prefer using ground turkey in EVERYTHING, but Hubby is a beef man. At least this way, he gets his beefy flavor/texture and I get a lighter/leaner meatball.

    Yummy! I don’t like making meatballs much because I hate touching raw meat…maybe I should get a scoop :) I do like the idea of having them frozen and making them in the crockpot. Thanks for the tips!

      That’s the VERY reason why I started using a scoop. The first time I made meatballs, I HATED TOUCHING THE MEAT. The scoop is so much easier and cleaner!
