I managed to get my daily chores done, quite a bit of freezer cooking completed, and assisted the band director again.
Of late, I’ve been very judgmental about certain members of my family who I don’t feel are living up to their potential. They seem to want everything handed to them on the proverbial silver platter. Unfortunately, I failed to realize that I’ve been a bit of a slug-a-bug too and I really shouldn’t be judging others.
I love the following verse. It was just what I needed to knock the dust off my rear.
Proverbs 12:11 ESV –
“Whoever works his land will have plenty of bread, but he who follows worthless pursuits lacks sense.”
You’re gonna be glad I got some work done because Make-Ahead Freezer Meatballs are perfect for a variety of different recipes. I’ve got a few recipes that I use them in and I’ll be sharing them as quickly as possible.
- 12 ounce Evaporated Milk
- 3 pounds Ground beef
- 1 Cup Oatmeal, ground up
- 1/2 Cup Bread Crumbs
- 1 Chopped Onion
- 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- 1/2 teaspoon Pepper
- 2 teaspoons Chili powder
- 2 Eggs, lightly beaten
In a very large bowl, mix ground beef, oatmeal, bread crumbs, onion, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and chili powder. Add in lightly beaten eggs; do not overwork.
Shape the meatballs into one" balls. Place in single layers on an ungreased baking sheet.
Place the meatballs on the tray into your freezer to “flash freeze” them for 1-2 hours. Transfer the meatballs to labelled plastic freezer storage bags.
Cover in your favorite sauce. Place in oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
