  1. To prepare meatballs: Remove meatballs from freezer. Place in a single layer on a clean pan. Bake from frozen in conventional oven at 350°F 16-20 minutes or convection oven at 325°F for 14-18 minutes or according to manufacturer's instructions. CCP: Heat to 165°F or higher for at least 15 seconds.

  2. To prepare noodles: Cook noodles according to al dente package directions. Drain and rinse in cool water to stop cooking. While noodles are cooking, add contents of Noodle Seasoning packets to 2 qt hot water. Mix well and let sauce sit at least 5 minutes. Pour sauce over noodles and toss to coat. Sauce will absorb into noodles. Divide noodles equally between 2 half pans for service.

  4. Remove meatballs from oven. Divide meatballs, water chestnuts and onions among three full line pans. Pour sauce evenly over meatballs.

  5. Cover and place product in warming cabinet until served. Ensure that hot food is held at a temperature above 140°F.

  6. Serve 1/2 c Asian Noodles with approx. 5 BBQ Teriyaki Meatballs.
