Author's Notes

Place any leftover meatballs in an air-tight container (or Ziploc bag), then store them in the fridge for up to 4 days, or in the freezer for up to 4 months.

To re-heat the frozen meatballs, allow them to thaw in the fridge or at room temperature then pan-fry them, or heat them up in the microwave.
