Sausage Meatball Subs

Easy sausage meatballs add a spicy kick to a classic sub! A fun addition to any game day menu or enjoyed as a weeknight meal!

Ingredients:

  • 1lb hot Italian sausage
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4C grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2C seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 24oz marinara sauce
  • 4: 8-inch sub rolls
  • Mozzarella slices
  • Parmesan cheese, optional - for topping

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine ground sausage, salt, pepper, egg, Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs. Mix well with your hands or a wooden spoon. Divide into 12 equal pieces, shaping into balls. 
  2. Preheat broiler. Prepare 4 8-inch sub rolls. Create a well in the top of each roll, large enough to hold the meatballs. Be careful to not slice through to the bottom of the rolls.  
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Sear meatballs on all sides. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add marinara sauce. Cover and cook until meatballs are no longer pink in the center and internal temperature is 160°F. 
  4. Add 2-3 slices of mozzarella to the cavity in each roll. Fill with meatballs and marinara sauce. Place on a baking sheet. Broil until cheese is fully melted and bread is lightly charred. 
  5. Serve with freshly grated Parmesan cheese. 

*If desired, medium or sweet sausage may be substituted for the hot sausage
