These meatballs are great to have on hand for a quick and easy dinner, or for parties and potlucks.

There are so many recipes you can make with them!

Freezing the meatballs before placing them in bags insures that they will not become one large frozen meatball lump!

Make Ahead Meatballs


4 lbs. ground beef
2 cups dry bread crumbs
1 cup milk
1 cup chopped onion
4 eggs
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon pepper


1.  Heat oven to 400°.  Mix all ingredients.  Shape into 80 1 ½”-inch meatballs.  Place on baking pans; bake for 20 minutes.

2.  Allow meatballs to cool slightly, remove from pans and place on clean pans that have been lined with aluminum foil, wax paper, or parchment (this will allow them to be removed more easily after they are frozen).

3.  Place in freezer for at least 2 hours.  Divide meatballs among 4 freezer bags, 20 meatballs in each bag.  Each bag will be about 1 lb. of meatballs.
