Make Ahead Meatballs
  • 5 lbs ground beef
  • 1-2 Cups Oats (or cooked rice)
  • 2-5 eggs (I use two but you can use more!)
  • 1 16oz Can Tomato Sauce (Can use up to 3 cups ketchup in its place)
  1. Combine all ingredients in large bowl and mix well with hands. Scoop out and form into meatballs approximately one inch thick. Place on foil lined baking sheets that have a lip on them. Bake in batches at 350 for about thirty minutes, storing raw meat covered in the refrigerator while you wait on each batch to bake. Test a meatball to make sure the center is no longer pink. Allow to cool and store in quart sized freezer bags. Use any of the following recipes or create your own!
  2. Place frozen meatballs in pot and add one of the following sauces. Cook over medium heat until heated through and serve with rice, egg noodles, or other cooked pasta or grain.
