Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Yummy!!! These meatballs were a bit of work on the front end but totally worth it on the nights we want to reheat. We made a huge batch, flash froze, transferred to bags, and stored in the freezer for quick meals. They are amazing! They reheat in a flash and are super moist and delicious. We eat them with rice. We did substitute panko for the bread because it was what we had on hand. :)
