    Red Apple Guy's Note:

    Crustly loaves filled with meatballs, sauce, mozzarella and onions and peppers heated to a crunchy, melty finish. This can be made quick and easy with frozen meatballs and ready made sauce, but we like to make our own turkey meatballs and crusty baguettes. The sandwiches in the photo are made using Bergy's Turkey Meatballs (we bake them) and our own sourdough baguettes.

      Great little sandwich. I did make Bergy's meatballs but only made two sandwiches. I used my homemade sauce, mozzarella and buns. Loved it. Will use this easy recipe many times.
