    Mama's Kitchen (Hope)'s Note:

    Meatball subs are so yummy. NOT on my diet though! So I decided to see if I could make them somewhat healthier. Viola! Though these are still NOT diet food, they are healthy, well HEALTHIER. These would be great football night food, after a night of trick or treating or any night you need something fast and easy. You could even make these vegetarian friendly using vegetarian meatballs and cheese. Enjoy!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat meatballs according to package or recipe directions. Heat sauce in microwave or on stove top. I like to dress up a jarred sauce with some Italian seasoning, more garlic (see step 3) That is up to you.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, open buns to expose the inside and place them on a cookie sheet, pizza stone or similar pan. Broil a few inches away from element and watching careful so they do not burn. You can flip them and toast the outside too if you like.
    3. 3
      Rub peeled garlic clove over the inside of the buns. You can then put the leftover clove of garlic into a garlic press and add to the sauce if you like. I love garlic so I add it then microwave for one minute so the garlic cooks just a bit and is not raw.
    4. 4
      Place cheese slice on open bun. If you like you can put them under the broiler again just to melt the cheese.
    5. 5
      Add three meatballs and 1/4 cup (2 ounces) of sauce on top of each bun. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and pepper flakes if desired.

      Made for the My 3 Chefs event (meatball theme), I was drawn to your recipe because I was after ingredient-friendly & easy-fix comfort food I could serve w/coleslaw & a fruit dessert. I had a batch of frozen meatballs on-hand & used a different method w/the buns by spreading garlic butter on the inside of the buns & pan-grilling them in my electric skillet. I used both provolone & Parmesan cheese. The prep & assembly took only a few min. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
