Can you cook meatballs from frozen in pan?

Add 2 tablespoons of oil to the pan. Place the amount of meatballs in the pan you want to use. Leave space between the meatballs and don't pile them up. My name is Melissa and I started this recipe website a few years ago to share recipes that I've been cooking for family and friends for years.

Chicken meatballs and turkey meatballs are a healthy option if you're looking for something with less fat. Whether you're cooking your own meatballs or bought them, you'll end up with the most tender meatballs. If you're working with frozen meatballs that aren't cooked but frozen, you've probably made the meatballs yourself and frozen some for later. You can check the temperature of the meatballs by placing an instant-reading thermometer in the center of the meatballs.

Letting the meatballs cook on the stove in a sauce over low heat is a great way to flavor the meatballs and sauce. Plus, making your own meatballs means you don't have to worry about all the additives found in most store-bought frozen meatballs. My favorite way to use frozen meatballs is to use frozen Italian meatballs and cook them in my simple San Marazano tomato sauce. In my experience, after hosting a lot of parties over the years, you can average 2 to 3 meatballs per person if the meatballs weigh about 2 ounces each.

I always have Italian meatballs, Asian meatballs, and Kofta meatballs waiting for me in the freezer for a quick meal.
