Feed the Freezer - Bite-Size Soup Meatballs

This is one of my favorite 'feed the freezer' recipes. Like most of my recipes using ground meat, I use a combination of ground beef and ground turkey. Making these can be very time consuming, but having them in the freezer can actually be a big time 'saver'. I take a day that I have a lot of time, put on some good music, and pour a good glass of wine.
A soup can be put together in little time with these meatballs. They're also good in sauces for pasta and subs.

Soup Meatballs

1 lb ground beef
1 lb ground turkey
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
2 tsp dried basil
2 tsp instant minced onion
1tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp allspice
2 tsp seasoned salt

In large bowl combine all ingredients and mix well.
Shape into 3/4" balls; place on cookie sheets.
Bake in a 350' oven for 20 minutes.
Keep meatballs on cookie sheets and when they are cooled place sheets in freezer.
When meatballs are frozen solid place in freezer bag.
They will be individually frozen so you can take out and use as little or as much as needed.
