These easy homemade meatballs are super simple to make (only 3 ingredients!) and you can totally freeze them for up to 30 days! Perfect for weeknight meals. Click To Tweet

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.
