easy freezy meatballs.

i love having frozen stuff on hand for when i'm not exactly "ready" for dinner.  or too lazy to cook, don't judge!
a go-to is meatballs.  but, they aren't exactly healthy when bought from a prepackaged bag at the store.
there's a lot of ingredients in them that shouldn't be.  umm, kinda gross.
so i like to make my own.  fall and winter is my prime time for making freezer meals.
i have more time to do so, and i'd much rather have comfort food when it's cold.  not salads!
you need:
2.5 lbs ground turkey or chicken
3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
1 tsp onion powder
2 tsp italian seasoning
1/3 c seasoned panko crumbs
1/3 c egg whites
1/4 parm cheese

time to get your hands dirty.  add all ingredients to a large bowl and mix n' mash with your hands until it's all incorporated.  form your meatballs into ping pong sized balls and form tightly.  place on a foil lined baking sheet and baked at 350 for 30 minutes.  let them cool then place them on wax paper and freeze.  once frozen, place them in a ziploc bag and store in the freezer for later use.
they're so juicy and so moist.  YUM.
