MAKE IT NOW
Preheat oven to 200°C.
Bake meatballs in oven for 20-23 minutes until no longer pink inside. Let cool 3-4 minutes, then serve.
MAKE IT A FREEZER MEAL
Place baking tray with raw meatballs into freezer and flash freeze until hard, about 1 hour. Transfer frozen meatballs to a labeled 4 litre freezer safe zip lock bag. Seal bag, removing as much air as possible. Place in freezer until ready to cook.
COOK FROM FROZEN
Preheat oven to 200°C. Place meatballs on a lightly greased rimmed baking dish.
Bake meatballs in oven for 25-30 minutes until no longer pink inside. Let cool 3-4 minutes, then serve.
COOK FIRST, THEN FREEZE & REHEAT
If you'd like to cook them first and then freeze them, bake them at 200°C for 20 minutes until no longer pink inside, then allow to cool completely. Add to 4 litre freezer bag, suck out air, seal bag and freeze.
To quickly reheat, just remove from bag and microwave on HIGH for 1-2 minutes and serve as desired, or place in oven and bake until warmed through.
NOTES
Freezer Instructions: Let baked meatballs cool completely and place in a freezer safe zip lock bag. Seal bag, removing as much air as possible.
