Just wondering. I saw in a local grocery flyer that they have 1 lb. bags of "dominex" eggplant cutlets for $3.99.
And I once tried a bag of frozen "meatballs"--a store brand I think--that were awful; but I see there are a lot of brands of frozen meatballs. (I wonder if TJ's sells any?) This would mainly be to eat them with spaghetti, I'm thinking.

All the people who want to tell me how easy it is to make their own & freeze them, that's fine, just not what I'm going for here. TIA

I've had the Dominex brand breaded eggplant cutlets and they're good! I used them with pasta and even made sandwiches with them.

I frequently buy the TJ's breaded frozen eggplant cutlets. I like them just fine, and they make it easy to serve eggplant parmesan whenever the mood strikes. I'm not a fan of any frozen meatballs I've tried.

I have bought this one brand frozen in the kosher section of a supermarket. Macabee was the name they were very good.

Costco sells a big bag of frozen meatballs that are quite tasty. Not like my homemade but, still, something that people will gobble down and not complain.

I've never bought frozen eggplant. I freeze eggplant casseroles at home and it comes out really well, so if you can find a company that does a good sauce, it should be OK.


Costco does a really good frozen spinach ravioli, if what you are looking for is something really easy to add to your spaghetti sauce.

My comment on buying frozen is that commercial foods contain a lot of salt and taste too salty to me. But that is what the general public wants to eat. If the public didn't want all that salt flavor, the manufacturers would cut back on it.

For eggplant parm I think the Michaelangelo's brand is very good.

I bought a 1 lb. box of Dominex brand breaded eggplant cutlets at Market Basket yesterday. Haven't tried them yet. I did see they sold a giant size--2.75 lb. I think!--of the Michaelangelo's eggplant parm for $7.50. Might try that someday, altho I didn't look at the fat & calories listed. However for me, that much eggplant parm would last a few days. Oh, & that Michaelangelo's eggplant parm was $9.96 at Walmart.

Thanks for all the tips!

I gave up on most frozen meatballs years ago because they all started to taste bad to me. TJ's party meatballs were the only ones I could find that tasted ok.

IKEA. My fiancée’s daughter was visiting recently and has gluten problems. I tried their gluten free vegetarian ones and they were great. In a red sauce over spaghetti squash. I put a pound of spicy chicken Italian sausage in my sauce along with onion, red bell pepper, garlic, and lots of dried basil & oregano. I’m not relying on store bought meatballs for flavor.

I make my own when my butcher has meatloaf mix on sale. I don’t normally do that in the summer. Browning the meatballs and then finishing them in the oven is a winter task. I use store bought at this time of year. The spaghetti squash plants are taking over my back yard. I’m going to be overflowing in a couple of months.
