Inspired by Suffocation Meatball Sandwiches over at Palatable Pastime; these awesome Meatball Sandwiches were a big hit with my guys. The melted Provolone Cheese, warm bread and a little kiss of garlic butter were wonderful! A Spicy Marinara Sauce added just the right amount of kick. Using frozen meatballs made short work of the preparation process.
I’ve never been a fan of meatball sandwiches. All it took was one bite and now I’m a convert – yeah, gonna have these again – and soon!
To Die For Meatball Sandwiches
4 Sub Sandwich Rolls
16 Frozen Italian Meatballs
1/2 Jar Spicy Marinara Sauce
8 slices provolone cheese
1/2 Cup Melted Butter
1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder or to taste
Pepprocini Peppers for garnish
Heat oven to 400 degrees.
Place meatballs in a sauce pan and cover with Marinara Sauce. Heat over medium heat, about 20 minutes.
Melt butter in a small skillet and season with garlic powder
Slice bread lengthwise and paint the inside of the rolls with melted garlic butter, followed by warm Marinara Sauce.
Fold Provolone cheese in half, place 2 folded slices on the bottom of each roll.
Warm rolls in the oven until cheese melts, about 5-8 minutes. Remove from oven.
Place 4 meatballs smothered in Marinara Sauce over melted cheese. Close rolls.
Slice into manageable pieces (down middle between two meatballs works best) and serve with Pepperocini peppers as desired.
