Does anyone freeze meatballs uncooked, and do they defrost without falling apart? I usually cook mine and use them straight away - I’ve never tried freezing them.

I have frozen them and they were fine.
But if you are unsure cook them then freeze them.

Yes, I freeze them uncooked. I open freeze them before bagging them up. They defrost ok, I try and make them quite firm in the first place though.

Also freeze them on a plastic tray in the bag.

Thank you ladies; that’s reassuring. I plan to make a big batch this weekend and freeze them.👍🏻

I cook mine then freeze in a tomato sauce. I was frying them until I was video calling my son and watched him cook his in the oven, much easier
