Recipe Monday - Turkey Meatball Subs

My hubby and I love to have sandwich night and this last week we wanted to try something different. We have a game night and making sandwiches just seems easier than making a big meal. This week he came up with the idea for Turkey Meatball Subs. I sat back and wrote down the recipe and waited with my mouth watering. This one is definitely a keeper.

Here is what you need:

1 lb ground turkey
1 lb turkey italian sausage
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper
2 tsp thyme
1 Tbsp oregano
1 egg
3/4 cup bread crumbs
1 jar spaghetti/marinara sauce
1 package 2% Low Fat Mozzarella cheese

In a large bowl mix all ingredients except sauce and cheese. Roll meat mixture into 2 inch round balls. Add a little olive oil to a heated skillet and brown meatballs. Put them in a baking dish and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 40 minutes. Heat sauce in a separate pan. Once meatballs are ready put a few of them inside any type of bread you wish. We used a soft yummy hoagie roll. Then you just top with some cheese.

The one in the picture seems huge but it was my hubby's serving. I actually took a couple of the meatballs and sliced them and put them in my roll. It made it so much easier to eat but was so very yummy. This will make 12 or more meatballs depending on the size you do. I put the remaining ones in the freezer for another day. Also, if you do not like jar sauce you can easily take some tomato sauce and some chopped tomatoes with italian seasoning and just heat.


Stumble It!
