Meatball Parm Subs on Garlic Bread
  • For the meatballs:
  • 2# ground beef
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup grated pecorino romano cheese
  • 1 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumb
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Black pepper
  • a handful of fresh chopped parsley
  • For the Sauce:
  • 4 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 Tbsp chopped red onion
  • 1 can pureed San Marzano tomatoes
  • Basil
  • Salt & Pepper
  • For the Garlic butter:
  • 1 stick softened butter
  • ½ tsp granulated garlic
  • Parsley
  • Salt
  • Shredded Mozzarella
  • Sub Rolls
  1. Preheat your oven to 385 degrees.
  2. In a bowl add the ground beef, eggs, cheese, breadcrumb, garlic powder, salt, pepper and parsley. Mix with hands until well combined.
  3. Use an ice cream scoop to form balls- roll by hand to smooth them out. Bake for about 15-18 minutes.
  4. While the meatballs are baking start the sauce. In a large pot over medium heat add the olive oil, onion and garlic. Cook until softened. Add in the can of tomatoes, several fresh basil leaves, salt and pepper. Simmer.
  5. Once the meatballs are done baking, add them to the pot of sauce. Simmer for 1 hour.
  6. In a small bowl mix the softened butter, garlic powder, parsley and salt. Slather all over your rolls {I prepared 5 subs for us with extra meatballs for another night}. Place on a lined baking sheet.
  7. Place the rolls into a 385 degree oven for about 5 minutes. Top each roll with halved meatballs and shredded mozzarella. Pop back in the oven until the cheese is melted.
