Make-ahead tips


This recipe can be made ahead a few different ways. First, you can make it completely ahead of time (like I did in this post) and portion it out into servings to enjoy for dinner during the week. You can also, prep the slow cooker the night before to make the meatballs for dinner the next day. Last, you can freeze the meatballs after they are baked and create a slow cooker freezer kit to use at a later time. This is a very versatile recipe that can be prepped ahead many different ways.
