These meatballs freeze really well! I know sometimes I drag a little bit when it comes to making meatballs. As much as I love eating them, it is a lot of chopping and rolling.
That’s why I only make them when my husband is home.
Those extra hands come in handy.
And every time when we do make these juicy and flavorful meatballs. We double the batches.
Because they freeze beautifully for a couple of months. All you need is to store cooked and cooled meatballs in an airtight container or a storage bag. Freezer they go.
Tip: To prevent meatballs from sticking to each other due to the moisture, you can place them on a sheet pan or a plate and freeze them for a couple hours with room between each meatball. Then you can throw them in a container or bag.

- When combining meatballs, do not overmix. Otherwise meatballs will tend to dry out during the cooking process.
- Using a Cast Iron Skillet will make the meatballs extra crispy on the outside while remaining juicy on the inside.
