Occasionally you will find me in the frozen food aisle aimlessly looking for fast and easy dinner ideas.

Easy Baked Meatballs Recipe

Save money by making your own homemade meatballs. In my opinion, this Easy Baked Meatballs Recipe taste so much better than store bought from the frozen food aisle. When you make your own Meatballs, you know exactly what you are putting into your belly.
 
These meatballs go great with spaghetti, or on their own. My kids love them and always ask for seconds. You can also make these ahead of time and freeze them. For me, this way works best especially when i’m in a hurry. When you are ready to bake them, just pull them out of the freezer the night before and put them in the refrigerator to defrost.

**If you have Celiac, or need a gluten-free version, make sure to use this Gluten Free Panko in place of the regular panko or breadcrumbs! It really doesn’t change the texture or taste. No one will know the difference.

    Mmmm, good recipe
  2. Turned out great! Although, I had to add extra breadcrumbs because my mix was too moist to form balls. Also, be sure to turn them over half way threw cooking so They don't get too dark!
  3. So delicious! My family loved these!
  4. Could I make these, bake them for like 15 minutes then put them in the crockpot with sauce for the afternoon?
  5. Was delicious my husband loved them and wants me to make them again tonight
  6. I added more breadcrumbs too, used turkey meat and half a yellow pepper and instead of salt and pepper I used chicken seasoning. My husband loved them. Delish!!
  7. This is almost like my recipie. I use one egg, no milk, more garlic and I sautée mine in evoo then throw the sauce on top. Going to bake them today though. Seems healthier like this :)
  8. Made them Panko turned out excellent, going to make them tonight with bread crumbs. My go to meatball recipe.
  9. I made these and we love them!! I would like to put some in the freezer for a quick meal. When you freeze them do you freeze them raw or cooked? Thank you!!!
    • Kim, you could absolutely freeze them! I like to freeze them cooked. To freeze cooked meatballs with the sauce, just place them in a freezer bag, flatten the bag to squeeze the air out and seal it. Label and date the freezer bag so you don’t forget what’s in there, and put it in a freezer. You could also freeze without the sauce. Just lay them flat on a pan when freezing so they don't clump together. To defrost frozen meatballs, you can either move the freezer bag to the refrigerator to thaw overnight, or take the frozen meatballs out of the freezer bag and thaw in microwave. My favorite way is to just throw the frozen meatballs in a slow cooker with sauce and let cook for 6-7 hours on low or 3 hours on High.
  10. Easiest, best meatballs ever!! Thank you. Made just like the recipe says, I think the milk makes them tender!
  11. Does the recipe yield 4-6 meatballs?
  12. These are great meatballs! Your post is awesome and thanks so much for sharing it with us at Full Plate Thursday. Hope you are having a great day and come back to see us real soon! Miz Helen
