Baked Turkey Meatballs with Mushroom Cream Sauce

Some meals are perfect for cooking extra to do a little meal-prep for the freezer. This is one of those! I figured it doesn’t take any extra time to mix up a larger batch of meat mixture, and only a few extra minutes to make the additional meatballs. This recipe will make enough for one meal, plus enough extra meatballs to stash in the freezer for two more meals for a family of 4.

This was a quick and easy meal! The Mushroom Cream Sauce is rich and delicious, and super easy to make! I baked the second tray of meatballs while we ate dinner.

If you don’t want to make extra meatballs for the freezer, CUT the meatball recipe in half. If you want a large meal, DOUBLE the Mushroom Cream Sauce recipe.

Frozen meatballs are wonderful for a quick meal, but they are also an easy appetizer. When you are rushed for time for a last minute appetizer, thaw and heat the meatballs in the microwave and serve with ready-made BBQ sauce, ranch dressing, honey mustard or a cranberry sauce would all be tasty!
