    evelyn/athens's Note:

    This is one of the greatest comfort food sandwiches and one I can make most times I'm craving (like right now) as I nearly always have some frozen meatballs on hand (I use Keftedakia (Greek Meatballs)).

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 hoagie roll, toasted lightly and split lengthwise, but not all the way through
    • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
    • 1/4 cup shredded provolone cheese
    • 5 -6 precooked meatballs (heated through)
    • 1/2 cup homemade marinara sauce, heated through (or bottled Italian sauce, but homemade MAKES IT!)
    • 1 teaspoon grated parmesan cheese
    • 1 dash dried oregano
    • 1 dash dried basil


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350F and lightly toast hoagie roll. (A toaster oven is ideal for this, if you have one).
    2. 2
      Sprinkle both cheeses in the bottom of the hoagie roll, holding back about 1 tablespoonful for the top of the roll.
    3. 3
      Place the meatballs down the centre of the roll and ladle hot marinara sauce on top.
    4. 4
      Sprinkle tablespoonful of reserved shredded cheese and the parmesan cheese over top. Rub some dried oregano and basil between your fingers and sprinkle over top.
    5. 5
      Put meatball sub in an oven-safe dish and return to oven for a couple of minutes to heat through and melt the cheeses. Cool for a minute before tucking in .
    6. 6
      Place a large napkin around your neck, take a step back and take a big bite. Tastes good, yes?

      I used frozen meatballs from BJ's, the Angus beef ones. They are amazing! I made marinara sauce that made these really special. We all enjoyed them to the last bite! I sprinkled them with lots of cheese then stuck in the oven for a few minutes to crisp up the rolls a little and melt the cheese. The kids and I ate them like there was no tomorrow. Heavenly!

      How could you go wrong with this recipe? I used Italian Meatballs for the meatballs and they worked great to make this a tasty Saturday night meal in front of the telly. The only real change I made was to use some red cheddar instead of provolone because I (sadly) can't get provolone in the UK. All the cheese I used were reduced fat varieties and I used wholemeal hoagie rolls. We had them alongside Baked Italian Potato Wedges . Made for the Family Picks portion of ZWT4.
