The weather has been really nice here this past week so when Lover Boy got home from work we decided to go on a family walk. When we got home it was already kind of late. In an effort to make a quick dinner I pulled out the ground beef that I had picked up from the local butcher earlier in the day and then looked around the pantry to figure out what to put with it. I was in the mood for something hearty and tasty and that we hadn’t had recently. I decided upon Meatball Subs when I saw the humongous loaf of deli bread (that I had bought several days before) sitting on the shelf going to waste (typical bread story in our house!)
This meal didn’t take very long to make and was actually quite easy. This is what I came up with:
This is definitely one of Lover Boy’s new favorite meals! I could have eaten 5 of these suckers (but chose not to since swimsuit season is right around the corner…)
- 1lb ground beef
- 1 egg
- 1/2c bread crumbs
- splash of milk
- 1/2c parmesan-romano cheese
- garlic, black pepper, parsley, salt, italian seasoning and oregano…amounts depending on your preference
- bread rolls
- provolone cheese
- spaghetti sauce
- In a mixing bowl mix 1lb ground beef, 1 egg, 1/2c bread crumbs and a splash of milk. Mix/mush/squish with your hands 🙂
- Mix in 1/2c Parmesan-Romano cheese (or more or less depending on your preference)
- As well as all of these guys: garlic, black pepper parsley, salt, italian seasoning and oregano (amounts depending on your preference)
- Form into meatballs and place in hot skillet. Cook uncovered until meat is cooked all of the way through
- Place meatballs on rolls, top with sauce and provolone cheese. Place in oven at 400 degrees until cheese is melted and bread is toasted
- Top with warmed spaghetti sauce

I remember when I had my first meatball sub. We were with Aunt Annie and Uncle Rich at one of their art shows. Uncle Rich got us lunch at one of the food booths and I got a meatball sub. It was so good that I ordered it again for lunch the next day. I will have to remember to get sub rolls when I am at the store next time so I can make this. Great idea!

ohh I remember too! They were amazing!
Ok. So. I think one way you could improve your recipes would be by listing all of the ingredients that your viewers will need at the beginning of the recipe. Also, note if you need to preheat the oven because I got all the way down to putting the meat in the skillet and noticed that my oven needed to be at 400 degrees. My oven is slow to warm up so advanced warning would be much appreciated :). I am still waiting for them to be done cooking so I will post later how I thought they tasted. Thanks for the recipe!
