Making meals ahead of time, freezing them and then reheating them later is one way to save time while still being able to eat homemade meals. Meatballs can be made ahead of time and frozen and they can be used to make a variety of dishes when they are reheated. You can use frozen meatballs to make spaghetti, BBQ meatballs or Swedish meatballs.
Things You'll Need
- Frozen Meatballs
- Cookie Sheet
- Kitchen Timer (optional)
Cooking Frozen Meatballs in the Oven
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Pull out the desired number of meatballs from the freezer and line them up on your cookie sheet, evenly spaced apart.
Place the cookie sheet with the meatballs on it on the center rack in the oven.
Set your kitchen timer to 30 minutes and take it with you if you are going leave the room, or at least make sure that you will be able to hear it from where you are at.
Cut one of the meatballs open enough so that you can feel the inside to make sure that it is thoroughly heated all the way through. If they are not warm all the way through then put them back in the oven, checking them every three to five minutes until they are thoroughly heated.
Pull the meatballs out of the oven and set them on top of the stove to cool once the timer goes off. Once they have cooled a little you can add them to whatever dish you want to use them for.
