Consider making a double batch and freezing portions — having frozen meatballs for a quick meal or a ready-to-go lunch will be a load off your mind. Before reaching for those freezer-safe bags, freeze meatballs — don’t let them touch — on a baking sheet for a couple of hours. Line the sheet with parchment paper for easy peeling and also gently press a sheet of parchment on top to avoid drying out. After a couple of hours, pop them into bags and return them to the freezer for 3 to 4 months! Pre-portioning meals is a simple Tip for Lunchboxes that you will not regret.
Make sure you defrost your meal — you don’t want to bite into an icy center! Thaw frozen meatballs by simply transferring them to the fridge for around 24 hours. For a quick thaw, keep the bag of frozen meatballs in a colander under cold running water.
