Nutritional information is approximate and is meant as a guideline only.
Fridge: Cooked meatballs will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 3-4 days.
Freezer: Cooked meatballs can be frozen (once cooled) in an airtight container for up to two months. I like to place them in a freezer bag first, remove all the air, then place them in an airtight container. This helps prevent freezer burn.
Top Tips:
  • Make the meatballs the same size for even cooking.
  • Do not overmix the meatballs, otherwise, they will not be as tender.
  • Do not overcook the meatballs. They just need to be nicely browned on the outside.
