These sausage shaped meatballs can be prepared a day ahead or even frozen, which is really handy. Making a casserole the day before you need it has the convenience factor, but as it can also improve the flavour, it can be a great idea.
I think this is one of the most versatile of the meatball recipes that Mum collected. You can make them as a savory to have with drinks or serve them as a main dish with either rice or pasta. The recipe even has instructions for freezing and reheating – what more you possibly want.
