Not really sure where the desire to make meatball subs came from. I have never even considered ordering one at Subway. The idea of putting meatballs on a sub sandwich actually seems kind of weird to me. Don’t meatballs only belong on top of a mound of spaghetti noodles?
But it seems like every time I step foot in a Subway there is always some one in the line ordering a meatball sub. So there has got to be something I’m missing out on.
And they were actually really tasty!! Parmesan, garlic and italian seasoned meatballs in a warm marinara sauce. Topped with a slice of melted provolone cheese! And the crunch of a lightly toasted baguette!
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup italian seasoned bread crumbs
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons parsley flakes
spaghetti or marinara sauce
1 french baguette
slices of provolone cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium sized bowl, combine ground beef, bread crumbs, and egg. Add garlic, parmesan cheese, and parsley. Mix until well combined. Shape into 12-15 meatballs and place in a baking dish. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
While the meatballs are in the oven, cut the baguette in half lengthwise. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic powder. Slip the baguette into the oven the last five minutes of the meatball baking time.
Warm the spaghetti sauce in a saucepan over medium heat. When they meatballs are done transfer them to the sauce. Coat with sauce and spoon them onto the baguette. Top with sliced provolone cheese. Return to the oven for two to three minutes to melt the cheese.
