My kiddos are always asking for meatballs with spaghetti but I refuse to buy those pre-made ones at the store. When you’re working on a tight grocery budget, spending $7+ on 1 bag of frozen meatballs is insane. Instead, when there is a great deal on ground beef we buy it and make large batches of our own. Add them to this homemade spaghetti sauce for a frugal and delicious weeknight meal.
These babies are so super simple to make (only 3 ingredients!) and the kiddos absolutely love them. They are easy to turn into meatball subs, party appetizers, or any other delicious meal that calls for meatballs. You can totally freeze them for up to 30 days in a freezer bag too, so no worries about them going bad before you use them.
Easy Homemade Meatballs Ingredients
- 2 lbs. Ground Beef
- 1 Box Instant Stuffing
- 1 Egg
First, place your ground beef into a mixing bowl.
Add in the entire box of instant stuffing and your egg.
Next, mix all of your ingredients until they are well combined.
After your ingredients are mixed together, form it into 1 inch balls and place on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
Once you have made all of your balls, place in the freezer for 1 hour.
Next, pull your meatballs out of the freezer and place in a large gallon freezer bag.
Label your bag with the date of freezing and place back in the freezer.
Pull out your meatballs and use just as you would the freezer kind at the store.
Cook Easy Homemade Meatballs on Stove Top

Cook Easy Homemade Meatballs in the Oven
To prepare your meatballs in the over, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place your desired amount of meatballs in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
