Freezer-Friendly Meatballs and Sauce

Freezer-Friendly Meatballs and Sauce


  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 3/4 cups of soft bread crumbs (1 1/2 slices of bread)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 eggs
  • 1/2 of a teaspoon of salt
  • 1 jar of your favorite tomato pasta sauce


  1. Start by chopping your onions up in small pieces and mixing them into the ground beef. Then cut up the pieces of bread and mix them into the meat. Then add in the milk. Add in the egg and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Next shape into 16-20 meatballs about 1 inch in diameter. Place the meatballs on baking sheets lined with foil. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes or until the meatballs reach 160 degrees on a meat thermometer. Let the meatballs cool and mix them into a jar of your favorite sauce. Pour the meatballs and sauce into a freezer bag and label. When you are ready to use this freezer meal, put the bag in the refrigerator to thaw the day before you want to make it. Then the day you cook it pour it into a skillet and simmer for 15 minutes. Serve over your favorite pasta.
