Meatballs Sandwich

Like most sandwiches, this is a cinch to prepare if you already have the following: hoagie or sub rolls, marinara sauce and meatballs, all home made in advance or store-bought, but..

It’s just as easy if you do it all from scratch in less than an hour (except for the bread, just buy good quality ones ) and it’s more economical too and way more delicious! The recipe below is from Rachel Ray, famous for her 30 minute-meals, so that means it’s quick and easy.  But I’m not as fast as Rachel, so it takes me more than half an hour over an hour ( including clean-up ) to make this but the important thing here is the end result..it’s DELICIOUS!!!

I just use quickmelt cheese and cheddar cheese in place of the more expensive cheeses in Rachel’s recipe.. and I like to mix ground pork and beef for my meatballs, sometimes I just use lean ground pork..all good stuff 😉 .

Gooey cheese over marinara-covered meatballs. It's worth every step making this super-yummy sandwich.

Ingredients (click ingredient to buy it)

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground sirloin I like to mix half lean ground pork and half ground beef
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1 cup fine bread crumbs
  • 1 medium onion chopped fine
  • 4 cloves garlic crushed and minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup a couple of handfuls flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped ( I sometimes used parsley flakes)
  • 1/4 cup a couple of handfuls grated cheese, if you have Parmigiano or Romano..great!
  • Coarse salt and black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (2 turns around the pan)
  • 4 cloves garlic crushed and chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • A handful flat-leaf parsley leaves chopped, about 2 tablespoons
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 28 ounces can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 14 ounces can chunky style crushed tomatoes
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 crusty sub rolls with or without sesame seeds
  • 1 10-ounce bag (2 1/2 cups) shredded provolone or Italian 4-cheese blend
  • Shredded basil sweet or shredded arugula (spicy) leaves, for garnish
  • Oven fries as an accompaniment, recipe follows

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Place ground sirloin in a large mixing bowl and punch a well into the center of meat. Fill well with the egg, bread crumbs, onion, garlic, red pepper flakes, Worcestershire, parsley, cheese, and a little salt and pepper.
  • Mix up meatball ingredients until well combined, yet not over-mixed.
  • Divide mixture into 4 equal parts, roll each part into 4 balls and space equally onto a nonstick baking sheet.
  • Place meatballs in oven and roast about 12 minutes. Break a meatball open and make sure meat is cooked through before removing from the oven.
  • Heat a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add oil and garlic. When garlic starts sizzling, add herbs and crushed pepper.
  • Allow oil to infuse for half a minute, then stir in the tomatoes and season sauce with salt and pepper.
  • Bring sauce to a bubble, reduce heat, and simmer until meatballs are removed from oven.
  • Combine meatballs and sauce and pile into sub rolls, 4 meatballs per sub. Top with shredded cheese and place under subs under broiler to melt cheese. Top with shredded basil or arugula.
