Where I come from, the only acceptable method for the creation of a Meatball Sammich is serving on grilled bread and smashing the meatballs. This meatball hoagie lacks lettuce, tomato, and onion.

Awesome sammies and easy, easy, easy! All of us really enjoyed this meal a lot with a nice green salad. I made this as listed, including the mozzarella (of course!) and wouldn't change it next time. Made for Zaar Stars tag game. Thanks CoffeeB! :)
