Do I have to freeze them?
You don’t have to freeze these if you’re ready to eat them now. Just go ahead and cook them and serve them.
How do I freeze them?
To freeze these meatballs let them cool and place them in a freezer safe ziplock bag with as much air let out as possible. They are good for three to four months in the freezer.
