Can these be made ahead?
Yes! Trust us, this is a very important part of our recipe searches. Being able to make meals ahead makes our busy nights feel less stressful. Simply make these meatballs ahead of time, then freeze in an airtight container or Ziploc freezer bag (#1979) until you’re ready to dig in. We suggest letting them thaw in the fridge until you’re ready to eat, then heat them back up in the microwave, oven, or in a pot of marinara sauce.
