    Hi Carolyn! You can definitely bake them, we recommend baking the meatballs at 350F for 20 minutes, until the meatballs have gotten less white and browned a bit. Then to make sure they stay moist, I’d simmer them in the sauce for a couple minutes! Let us know how they turn out!

    Can I bake/cook meat balls alone in the oven then add them to a bought sauce? I want to do this instead of pan frying. what temperature would I use and about how long?
