    I do love meatballs they are good on stroganoff, spaghetti and meatball subs.

    I was also pregnant in 2008 – Layla is 1 and a half now and loves all things meat, especially meatballs, which she just calls Baaaa (because they look like balls).
    I am going to give your recipe a shot. I would like to freeze them though, better to do that when they are raw no?

      Hilarious! My Jordan loves these meatballs — and pretty much anything else I put in front of her! I actually freeze these often and save them for adding to spaghetti, meatball subs, stroganoff, etc. They freeze really well. What I have done is cook them until they are browned on all sides and cooked almost all the way through. That way, when I reheat them and add them to whatever I’m cooking, they finish cooking very quickly.

      Not sure if you do this already, but I’d recommend laying out the mostly-cooked meatballs on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and freezing them individually in the freezer before placing them together in an airtight container or bag for storage in the freezer.

      I hope you (and Layla) enjoy the meatballs!
