Processed frozen meatballs that can be purchased in the grocery store are not healthy for you to eat due to the fact they are full of preservatives and they really are not made from hamburger. They are made out of fillers such as soy and by-products.
Eat healthier and be healthier by making your own meatballs then freeze them. They will stay up to a month in your freezer.
1 pound hamburger
1 onion chopped
8 - 10 saltine crackers
Cumin (if you like a smoky flavor)
Pepper - I like course ground
Mix all of the ingredients until they are well blended into the meat. Form your meatballs small and equal in size. This will assure your meatballs are all cooked evenly. Place your meatballs in a pan and cook on medium heat until browned. There is no need to add any oil as the grease from the hamburger will do just fine. Watch your meatballs and turn them to evenly brown each one.
Cool your meatballs completely.
By freezing your fully cooked homemade meatballs in this manner you can pick out as many as you want for dinner or a snack.
There you have it. A healthy choice for made-ahead meatballs. You will never purchase processed meatballs ever again and if you have leftover raw hamburger you are not wasting any food or money.
