Turkey Meatball Subs --Quick and Easy for the Busy Season

Turkey Meatball Sub on Garlic Toasted Roll
Turkey Meatball Subs

This is the time of year when everyone in my house is headed in different directions. As much as I like having dinner ready for an evening meal, sometimes you need to plan for eat-and-run. When you are not sure when you may be cooking or how many people will be there, meatball subs are a perfect answer. You can keep most of the ingredients on hand, and throw them together in whatever volume you need fairly quickly. If you like, you can use any meat for the meatballs, or even substitute vegetarian "chicken" patties and make it more like a chicken parm sandwich.


 
I start with soft bolillo rolls, you can get white or whole wheat. I toast them up like you would garlic bread, and while they are toasting, I make (heat) the meatballs. Add some cheese and bake until melted, and you have a very filling meal. Add a salad, and you are good to go.
 
 
 
6 bolillo rolls or other soft sub roll
Butter or olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced or garlic powder
28 oz. of your favorite spaghetti sauce
Frozen turkey meatballs, about 24 to 30
Grated mozzerella cheese, about 2 cups or so
 
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Split bread rolls and either butter lighty or brush with olive oil. Sprinkle on garlic in whatever form you like. Arrange open faced on a cookie sheet. Toast in the oven, remove when slightly golden brown.
 
While rolls are toasting, heat spaghetti sauce, and cook the meatballs in it until the meatballs are warmed through, about 5 minutes. They heat up fairly quickly from the frozen state.
 
Place about 4 or 5 meatballs on rolls, and some additional sauce. Cover with cheese and return to the oven until cheese is melted and bubbly.
