Freezer Files: Martha Stewart Mini Meatballs

Another installment of Freezer Files. See #1 and #2 for some more freezer friendly meal reviews. Up this time is another from the Freezer Friendly Foods Slide Show from Martha - Mini Meatballs:
Recipe here.

This was one of the first things I made to freeze. I made two batches, one to eat that night and another to freeze for later. Now to be honest, this was back in October, before the baby, so my memory might be a bit hazy. The recipe is pretty simple - just measure, mix, form into balls and bake or freeze.

Here they are all rolled up ready to be chilled.

Once chilled, I put them in a freezer bag labeled with the cooking instructions.

And here they are once I finally made them.

The Verdict: They were not my best. I have made all different recipes of meatballs before, and this was not one of my favorites. I just tried it because the other recipe from that article came out well. There was waaaay too much garlic - and I don't think I even added as much as I was supposed to. I also didn't taste the bacon. They weren't awful, just not the best meatball - I know I can do better. They were also pretty simple to make, so there's a positive. Next time, I will use another recipe, double it, and freeze half.

Things to Consider: Do not use all the garlic it calls for. I also made them a bit bigger so I didn't get as many as expected.

Anyone out there have a better meatball recipe I can try? Are there any from Giada?
