Freezer Meatballs – extra large batch

88 meatballs.  That’s a lot of meatballs to stash away in the freezer.

It boggles my mind, but somehow we have managed to eat all 88 meatballs and we didn’t even have company to help.  Did I mention it only took us 3 weeks to polish them off?  Yikes!

I used them for spaghetti/tortellini meals twice.  And I had two recipes to try out that used meatballs.  One of them didn’t turn out quite the way I’d hoped the first time, so I tried it again.  My kids have revolted now.  I don’t think I can feed them another meatball dish for  a while.

But, I still think it’s a great idea to have homemade meatballs in the freezer.  They taste much better than the store-bought kind and they are better for you too.  You can use them for spaghetti, of course.  But they’re also good in Sweet and Sour Meatballs over Rice and Meatball Subs.

Before we get to the recipe, I want to remind you about Virtual Freezer Cooking Day on February 19.  On that Saturday, I’ll be in my kitchen cooking freezer foods and I’ll be checking in on Facebook frequently to hear what you’re cooking in your kitchens.  Here are the details of the event.  Be sure to RSVP. There will be prizes and giveaways involved!

Back to today’s recipe:  Somehow I failed to take a picture of the finished meatballs.  The ingredient photo is at the top of the post.

50s Prime Time Meatloaf

The other day while I was thinking about Disney World, I started looking through recipes on AllEars.Net.  Deb has an excellent collection of recipes for foods that are served in various WDW restaurants.  I made note of several that I want to try, including this meatloaf which is served at the 50s Prime Time Cafe in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  The meatloaf was easy to make, flavorful and moist.  As a bonus, it made so much I turned it into two loaves and froze one for another time.
