At my favorite sub shop meatball subs are my favorite. Mr.Picky dislikes marinara sauce and was not excited to see that I was making meatball subs with a red sauce. Next thing I know he is going up for a second sandwich. The end results for dinner was those were pretty good, I guess you can make them again. Turns out I know what a good sandwich is, and we have a new dinner to add to the list.
I am going to let you know now that I cheated and used frozen Italian meatballs, but by all means feel free to make your own. I had a package in the freezer and have been working hard to empty my freezer.
Meatballs and Sauce:
- 25-30 meatballs, frozen or cooked
- 1 (16 oz.) can tomato sauce
- 1/2 tsp granulated onion
- 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1/2 tsp dried basil
- 2-3 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1 Tbs brown sugar
- 5-6 french hoagie rolls or rolls of your choice
- mozzarella cheese
- parmesan cheese
- meatballs and sauce ( I slice my meatballs in half to make a more manageable sandwich)
Place meatballs and sauce ingredients in a small 1 quart slow cooker. Cook on keep warm for about 4 hours, I believe this is key in order to make the sauce amazing.
To assemble sandwiches open up rolls on a sheet pan. Place mozzarella cheese on the top half and sliced meatballs on the bottom half. Spoon a bit of sauce onto meatballs and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
Broil assembled sandwiches open until bubbly, remove and fold sandwich in half.
