They are no trouble to make and take less time and effort than traipsing off to the store to buy the ready-made ones. And you control the number you have in the freezer.
I have always made my own and have never ever purchased pre-made frozen or fresh meatballs.
As far as just as easy, I must disagree.
Making homemade meatballs is time consuming and frankly a lot of work.
We go to Costco once every three months or so. We go on Monday in fact.
I'm not going to buy the meatballs unless I get to try them first.
I would buy the ones my daughter brought over as a convenience.
I already make and store/freeze marinara sauce in small containers. Enough for about four servings.
If the Costco meatballs were good, I could have dinner ready in minutes.
