"My husband loves meatball subs and he orders them often at our local sandwich shop so I decided to make them for him at home. Oh, he loved them by the way!"
2 pounds hamburger
1/2 cup bread crumbs, Italian style
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes or if desired you may use 1 Tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped finely
Mix all ingredients together and form into meatballs that are about 2-inches in diameter. In a large sauté pan, brown meatballs in about 2 Tablespoons of olive or canola oil on all sides. Stir in:
1-(28 ounce) can of crushed tomatoes
1-(24 ounce) jar pasta sauce
Let meatballs simmer in sauce for 30 minutes.
To prepare sandwiches:
Crusty Hoagie or Sub Rolls
Slices of Fresh Mozzarella Cheese
Slice hoagie rolls lengthwise (leaving one edge un-cut so that you can spoon meatballs into hoagie like a pocket). Spoon meatballs and sauce onto roll and layer on slices of mozzarella cheese. Place sandwiches on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted. ENJOY!
