It’s that time of year again. No matter what form of school your kids are heading back to, you’ll need an arsenal of quick weeknight meals to serve on busy nights. Well, say hello to your new secret weapon for speedy weeknight meals: frozen meatballs.
Keeping a stash of frozen meatballs on hand can open the door to any number of easy dinners. You can make your own meatballs and freeze them for convenience, or simply pick up a bag in the freezer aisle to use at a moment’s notice.

Frozen meatballs cook in a flash, take on almost any flavors, and can be prepared in slow cooker, oven or even on the grill. From Swedish meatballs and meatball kabobs, to meatball pizza and meatball soup, you won’t tire of this kitchen staple once you see the world of possibilities.
