Anyone who knows me at all knows that my favorite food is sandwiches. I seriously could live off of sandwiches ALWAYS. You always get a variety with sandwiches. There are ENDLESS possibilities! So when Josh noticed that we had some provolone cheese left and no more lunch meat, he suggested that we make meatball subs. I was definitely on board because our children LOVE meatballs with their spaghetti and this would change things up for them a bit.
I have a standard recipe that I use when I’m making meatballs for my spaghetti, but I figured I’d spice it up a little for this.
In a medium size bowl combined…
2lbs ground beef
4 Tbsp Panko Bread Crumbs
1 tsp Lawry’s Season Salt
1 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1 large green onion chopped
Now you need to mix it all up. I use my hands because I feel like it gets everything mixed together best. When it’s been all mixed up, form into balls. I made mine slightly larger than I do for spaghetti. This recipe will make 15-18 meatballs depending on size.
Next I put my oven broiler on high and kept the rack in the middle of the oven. I let the meatballs broil for 5 mins and then used tongs to turn them. Be careful when you turn them because they might stick a little to your pan. Broil for another 3-4 mins and turn one more time, broiling for another couple of mins. Your meatballs should have a nice brown color to them now and you can transfer them to a pot on your stove. Once they are all in your pot, add your favorite spaghetti or marinara sauce. I used Hunt’s Traditional because it was in my pantry. 🙂 One day I’ll learn how to can my own spaghetti sauce!
Set your pot to simmer while you are preparing your sides so they can soak in the sauce for a bit.
I used my french bread recipe for the rolls and they turned out SO great! I made the dough and then split it into 5 mini french loaves. It worked perfectly!
We served them with seasoned oven fries. I probably should have prepared a veggie, but I was on my way out the door for a Relief Society activity. 🙂 Hope you all enjoy!
