Meatballs - how/when to freeze ?

Darlinghurst | Nov 15, 2008 09:56 AM

I have a variety of ground meats on hand, and thought meatballs would be a great way to use it all up. I have

0.5# ground beef
0.75# ground pork
1# ground veal

I am kind of new at making meatballs, and think that this would be a great mixture to use. My question is about how I can make and freeze the meatballs, since I live alone and would like to keep some on hand. Should I cook then freeze, or freeze them raw ?

I was thinking about using Giada's recipe for Bucatini All'Amatriciana with Spicy Smoked Mozzarella Meatballs, but am unsure how the mozzarella would emerge from the freezing process.

Any and all suggestions welcome ... !
