Notes

Freezing Hints and Tips:

  • San Choy Bau Noodle Bars are suitable for freezing up to four months. Double, or even triple the batch so you have these savoury balls ready to serve anytime you need a quick appetiser.
  • When freezing San Choy Bau Noodle Balls, place balls in a single layer in a GLAD Sandwich Snap Lock Bag. Lightly place your hand over the bag to remove any access air before snapping shut.
  • Be sure to label the bag and store on the side of your fridge for easy access and removal. If your find that your freezer is quite full, move the back stuff to the front and try to keep similar recipes together. You can easily fit several bags of savoury balls, slices and other freezable snacks into your freezer by only placing a single layer of the item in the Snap Lock Bag and stacking the bags on top of one another.
  • You can also store San Choy Bau Noodle Balls in the fridge for up to three days. Simply place the balls in a GLAD Snap Lock Bag as above and seal.

Getting the Kids Involved

San Choy Bau Noodle Balls are a fun one to make with the kids. They are fairly simple and my kids really love getting their hands dirty and creating the balls out of the mixture. We tested these guys out a Playgroup the other week and they went down really well with all of our kiddies. 

Food Waste Challenge - What You Could Save

  • Ditch the party pies and save by taking a batch of these noodle balls to your next party ($10 savings!)
  • Don't rely on the bickies and crackers for an after school snack - simply take out a bag of our noodle balls from the freezer a few hours before the kids get home from school ($15 savings)
  • Use up any leftover pork mince from the night before (rather than feeding it to the dog) ($5.00 savings)
