I recently shared how much I love make ahead meals and a good slow cooker recipe! I showed you how I made my Make Ahead Meatballs and froze them to use for family meals during the week. Today I share just one of the slow cooker recipes I like using my make ahead frozen meatballs for, Albondiga soup! That’s right, Slow Cooker Albondigas using my homemade Frozen Turkey Meatballs!
The reality is I’m a busy mom. I work from home but i’m still a wife and a mama! I love cooking but I don’t often have time to babysit my meals so it’s easier to plan ahead and using make ahead steps and the slow cookers help is a life saver!
Let’s Make Slow Cooker Albondigas
Albondigas can be made with different types of meatballs traditionally I grew up eating beef meatballs. My family however, enjoys the the turkey meatballs best. I can’t taste the difference!
