When I make meatballs, I always make a bunch of them for the freezer. We were out of meatballs so this morning, after a trip to the Y, meatball madness began.
When I first start making the meatballs, I make a little flat one (or two) that will cook quickly so I can do a taste test and see if I need to add something.
The meatballs were browned, then drained and cooled a bit on paper towels.
Then they were placed in dishes to go into the freezer for flash freezing. The drawback with the side by side freezer is they are so narrow so my big cookie sheet doesn’t fit. I could’ve walked downstairs and put them in the big freezer but . . that was too much trouble.
The ones that needed to be packed are now ready to pack into bags.
190 meatballs go into ziplock bags. 20 are left out to go into today’s sauce.
The stove has been cleaned, the floor has been mopped, the sauce is simmering and . . I’m going downstairs to sew!
