Hi there! My name is Ann Marie and I am a happy housewife and mommy to my two little darlings. My passion is making our home a great place for them to grow up. I love cooking, baking, decorating and all things home and family. I have recently rediscovered my love for writing and broke into the blogging world with thewelllovednest.com. I recently shared my recipe for Flank Steak Pinwheels. But, today I wanted to share my recipe for Turkey Meatball Subs with you…
Yum-yum-gimme-some! These were sooo yummy and soooo easy to make.
Mix in some Ricotta
A little fresh parsley
and some breadcrumbs, an egg and some milk.
and mix it all up!
I like to use an ice cream scooper like this to make meatballs because they come out perfectly shaped and uniform in size
pop ‘em in a hot pan with a little olive oil. 3 minutes on each side.
While the meatballs were cooking I sliced the cheese. You could buy pre sliced if you want, but I think it it more cost effective to do it this way
I also prepared the rolls whilst the meatballs cooked This involved making garlic paste. I would much rather use Fresh garlic and make a paste than to buy the stuff. Yummier and cheaper too. Plus all that chopping and pressing is just fun.
Mix your garlic paste with a little oil and brush it on your rolls.
stick them under the broiler for just a minute you don’t want them to get too toasty or the bread will get to hard to eat.
Now it’s time to get saucy. Just add the sauce to the meatballs.
Load your meatballs into the rolls with a spoonful of sauce and top with cheese. You’ll notice that the recipe says 5 subs and I have 6. 3 of my subs were short a meatball I just prepared all the rolls in the package. oh well.
Now you just want to stick them back under the broiler until the cheese melts and is bubbly.
These were so good, I could eat them everyday
