Italian Mozzarella Meatball Sub Sandwich

Hello Friends! 

I want to share a favorite sandwich that my son Trey loves! Its my Meatball Sub that I top with mozzarella cheese melted over the top. Its really easy to quickly put together on a busy school night or for a fun weekend movie night. 

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 3/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 rolls or buns 
  • 4 ounces mozzarella, sliced

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, shallot, garlic, parsley, bread crumbs, Parmesan, and egg. Using clean hands, stir until well combined. Roll mixture into 1 1/2-inch meatballs, forming about 18-20 meatballs.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add meatballs, in batches, and cook until all sides are browned about 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  4. Have your marina sauce ready to place in the pot with meatballs. 
  5. Reduce heat to low and add sauce and meatballs to the skillet, simmering until the sauce has thickened about 10-15 minutes.
  6. To assemble the sandwich, place 3-4 meatballs and a spoonful of marinara into each baguette. Top with sliced mozzarella and place into oven and bake until the cheese has melted about 3 minutes. Do not walk away because the cheese will melt quickly. 
  7. Serve immediately
