Meatza Balls

I've been SUPER busy for the past week but I feel the need to make amends for being awol -- I'm offering up this delicious recipe for meatza balls. I made these for a fund raiser this weekend and they went over SMASHINGLY! They are yummy little treats stuffed with mozzarella and covered with a simple marinara sauce... At least three people asked me for the recipe so here it is! I present to some and reintroduce to others, Meatza Balls!

1 lb grass-fed beef
2 lbs italian sausage
1 Tbsp italian seasoning
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Could these be frozen either before or after cooking??

These can be frozen either way. I would flash freeze them raw - place them on a cookie sheet then freeze.
