For my food plan this week I planned on making meatballs and rice for today's dinner. Instead of making one quick batch, I decided to make a bunch and freeze a few batches. We still have a lot of ground moose left over from last year and since hunting season is coming soon so I would like to use up last years before we get more this year.
Meatballs are super easy, all you have to do is mix your ground burger or moose or whatever meat you may use. So use any recipe you like or this time around I made a Italian mix and one normal everyday meat ball which i decided I will use tonight for a sweet and sour meatballs.
Then you make the balls and place on a cooking sheet. Then cook the meatballs about 1/3 through.
Then I take the meatballs once they have cooled down and I like to use my vacuum sealer. So got that out and I filled my first bag and started vacuum sealing and then it started sucking all the juices from it, so that sucked. So the next batched I filled a large freezer Ziploc bag and put it in backwards and folded the Ziploc bag inside my vacuum seal bag and also left and opening on the Ziploc bag so it can still get all the air out. So it all worked out.
I made 4 batches and froze 3 for another day. For easy meatballs for spaghetti or meatball sandwiches!
