Get the Kids Cooking!
This is a great recipe for bringing your kids into the kitchen. From getting their hands into the bowl, to forming the meatballs, they will have fun working with you and feel great when they tell the family that they made dinner!  

Fill up the oven and save your extra meatballs for future meals.  
Once cooled, they freeze beautifully in a gallon sized freezer bag (or small batches in quart sized freezer bags).  Make a single, flat layer of the meatballs in the bags so they take up little space in your freezer.  Remove individual meatballs as needed or use the entire bag for a recipe. 

Prepared meatballs can be used in a variety of ways.  From entrees to appetizers, you will be happy that you have filled your freezer!
