Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    These meatballs are delicious over pasta, but also make a great meatball sub, or cut them into pieces as a pizza topping.
  • tip 2
    These meatballs freeze really well. Freeze them individually on a cookie sheet, and when frozen solid, place in a freezer plastic bag.
