  • Make hamburger patties and freeze them. Make a meatloaf and freeze it or a big batch of meatballs, bake, cool and freeze. Then you can just toss the meatballs in sauce as it is cooking.

  • I think 3 days is almost pushin' it as far as how long it stays good in the fridge, I would try to use it tonight.

  • I'm kind of thinking the same thing, maybe even try to find room in the freezer. It's already cooked so i can just use it frozen as well, right?
