Meatball subs are one of those meals that are satisfying anytime. When I learned that Johnsonville now makes meatballs I KNEW I wanted to try them with these subs first! With life crazy busy right now around the holidays, I wanted something quick and easy that could either be a full-on meal or if I wanted to swap the hoagie rolls for dinner rolls I could quickly turn these into an appetizer to share at one of my holiday parties. Being the cheese lover that I am, I knew I wanted to load it up to the cheesiest. Add in some provolone, mozzarella, and parmesan and you’re set. With the Johnsonville meatballs fully cooked – you couldn’t ask for an easier meal, I’m telling you!

Not only are these subs great for family and holiday parties, but also fantastic for your game day eats. No one wants to spend a bunch of time in the kitchen when they’d rather be socializing, that’s another benefit to this recipe – less time in the kitchen and more time with family gathered around the table or the t.v. I have fond memories with a dear friend of having meatball sandwiches when I’d spend time with her at her house (she wasn’t much of a cook) and they were always delicious. I guess you could say she inspired this recipe in a way. I hope you’ll give them a try, and if you do, be sure and let me know – tag me on social media or shoot me an email!

Ingredients

  • 4 hoagie rolls
  • 8 thin slices provolone cheese
  • 16 Classic Italian Johnsonville Meatballs
  • 1-2 c. marinara
  • 3/4 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Parsley optional
  • 2 tbsp. grated parmesan

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Cut a 1-inch V-shaped notch out of the top of the hoagie roll and discard. Remove some of the roll’s interior to form a pocket so the meatballs can fit easily, place on baking sheet.

  2. Add two slices of provolone per roll. Top with four Classic Italian Johnsonville Meatballs per roll. Top with marinara (approx. 1/4-1/2 c. sauce per roll). Sprinkle with mozzarella. Garnish with parsley. Cover with foil and bake 20 minutes.

  3. Remove foil and broil for 1-2 minutes until cheese is brown and bubbly. Remove from oven and finish with a light dusting of Parmesan cheese.
