Super tender and tasty meatballs braised in a tomato-y sauce topped off with melty cheese in a toasty baguette.

Provided by Stephanie

Categories     Main Course

Time 1h30m

Number Of Ingredients 14

3 cups bread (cut into small cubes)
1 cup milk
1 lb ground beef
3 eggs
3 cloves garlic
3/4 cups Parmigiano Reggiano cheese (grated)
2 tbsp fresh flat leaf parsley (finely chopped)
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
4-5 cups basic tomato sauce (or your favorite tomato sauce)
1 french demi baguette (or bread of choice)
4 meatballs (and sauce)
2-4 slices low moisture fresh mozzarella cheese
Parmigiano Reggiano cheese (grated, to serve)


  • Heat the oven to 400°F. In a large skillet or saucepan with a lid, heat up your tomato sauce over medium low heat.
  • Place the bread cubes in a bowl and cover with milk, tossing so that all the cubes are saturated. After 1-2 minutes the bread should be soggy and wet. Using your hands, squeeze out as much milk as possible. Use your fingertips to break up the bread into very small breadcrumbs.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the bread, ground beef, eggs, garlic, parmesan, flat leaf parsley, salt, and freshly ground pepper. You want to mix everything so that it's homogenous, but loose - don't work the meatball mixture too much.
  • By this time your sauce should be simmering with several bubbles breaking the surface. Form large meatballs (I made 7 big ones) and drop them directly into the sauce. Simmer in the sauce, partially covered, over medium heat, flipping occasionally. Simmer gently until cooked through, about 25-30 minutes.
  • Cut the baguette in half so you'll have two sandwiches, then cut lengthwise. Top both sides of the baguette with a generous amount of sauce and a bit of grated parmesan. Place the meatballs on the bottom baguette and top with slices of mozzarella and some more parmesan.
  • Bake until the cheese is gooey and melted. Place the top half of the sandwich on top of the meatballs and enjoy!

Time 1h

Yield 6

Number Of Ingredients 20

olive oil
1 small potato
500 g minced higher-welfare pork shoulder
500 g quality minced beef
4 sprigs of fresh rosemary
6 submarine rolls
red wine vinegar
100 g Red Leicester cheese
50 g watercress
2 red onions
1 bulb of fennel
1 heaped tablespoon plain flour
100 ml porter or stout
1 litre quality organic chicken stock
1 tablespoon HP sauce
1 tablespoon tomato ketchup
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon English mustard
1 tablespoon mango chutney


  • Preheat the oven to 200ºC/400ºF/gas 6. Lightly oil a large roasting tray.
  • Peel and coarsely grate the potato, then place in a bowl with the minced pork and beef. Scrunch together, then use wet hands to divide and roll the mixture into 21 balls, each slightly larger than a golf ball. Reserving 3, place the rest in the prepared roasting tray and set aside.
  • To make the gravy, peel the onions, trim the fennel, then finely chop both and place in a large pan on a medium heat with 1 tablespoon of oil. Cook for 10 minutes, or until softened, stirring occasionally.
  • Break in the 3 reserved meatballs, then cook for a further 10 minutes on a high heat, or until dark golden. Stir in the flour for 2 minutes, then add the porter and leave to cook away.
  • Pour in the stock, stir in the remaining gravy ingredients, then bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer for 20 minutes, or until thick and glossy.
  • Meanwhile, season the tray of meatballs with sea salt and black pepper, then cook in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden and cooked through.
  • Transfer the tray to a medium heat on the hob, pour over the gravy, add the rosemary sprigs and simmer for a few minutes while you warm the rolls in the cooling oven.
  • Stir a splash of vinegar into the gravy, then grate over the cheese and turn off the heat.
  • Slice open the rolls, then spoon in the cheesy meatballs and gravy. Top with pinches of watercress, and serve with any leftover gravy for dunking. Epic!

1 medium onion, chopped fine
4 cloves garlic, crushed and minced
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons (several drops) Worcestershire sauce,
1/4 cup (a couple of handfuls) flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped
1/4 cup (a couple of handfuls) grated Parmigiano or Romano
Coarse salt and black pepper
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, (2 turns around the pan)
4 cloves garlic, crushed and chopped
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
A handful flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped, about 2 tablespoons
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
One 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
One 14-ounce can chunky style crushed tomatoes
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 semolina crusty sub rolls, with or without sesame seeds
One 10-ounce bag (2 1/2 cups) shredded Provolone or Italian 4-cheese blend
Shredded basil (sweet) or shredded arugula (spicy) leaves, for garnish
Oven Fries, as an accompaniment, recipe follows
4 medium white skinned potatoes, each cut into 8 wedges lengthwise
Extra-virgin olive oil, to coat
Grill seasoning blend or coarse salt and black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Place ground sirloin in a large mixing bowl and punch a well into the center of meat. Fill well with the egg, bread crumbs, onion, garlic, red pepper flakes, Worcestershire, parsley, cheese, and a little salt and pepper. Mix up meatball ingredients until well combined, yet not over-mixed. Divide mix into 4 equal parts, roll each part into 4 balls and space equally onto a nonstick baking sheet. Place meatballs in oven and roast about 12 minutes. Break a meatball open and make sure meat is cooked through before removing from the oven.
  • Heat a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add oil and garlic. When garlic starts sizzling, add herbs and crushed pepper. Allow oil to infuse for half a minute, then stir in the tomatoes and season sauce with salt and pepper. Bring sauce to a bubble, reduce heat, and simmer until meatballs are removed from oven.
  • Combine meatballs and sauce and pile into sub rolls, 4 meatballs per sub. Top with shredded cheese and place under subs under broiler to melt cheese. Top with shredded basil or arugula and serve with a pile of Oven Fries.
  • Drizzle potatoes with a generous pour of extra-virgin olive oil. Toss potatoes with seasoning blend or coarse salt and pepper. Place potatoes on a nonstick baking sheet and roast 20 minutes or until just tender. Give the baking sheet a good shake after 10 minutes to avoid sticking.

Meatball Subs image

In this classic Italian American sandwich, tender meatballs drenched in tomato sauce are tucked into crisp rolls then buried under a blanket of gooey cheese. It's a messy sandwich no matter how you build it or bite into it, but wise construction can help: First, hollow out the rolls a bit so the meatballs have a place to sit. Then, use the leftover crumbs to make the meatballs, which will keep them light. Finally, toast the rolls to prevent them from getting too soggy with sauce. Of course, some crispy-gone-soggy bites are welcome, just as the cheese pulls, sauce drips and messy fingers are, too. They're all part of the experience.

Time 30m

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 10

4 (6-inch-long) sub, hero or hoagie rolls, split lengthwise but still attached on one side
1 egg
Kosher salt and black pepper
2 garlic cloves, peeled
Extra-virgin olive oil, for greasing
1 pound ground beef (at least 15 percent fat)
1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan, plus more for serving
2 tablespoons chopped basil leaves, plus more for serving
2 cups marinara sauce (homemade or from a 24-ounce jar)
4 slices mozzarella or provolone


  • Heat the broiler to high with a rack no more than 6 inches from the heat source. (See Tip if you don't have a broiler.) Using a fork, scrape out some of the interior of the rolls until you get about 1 cup bread crumbs. Add them to a large bowl along with 1/2 cup water, the egg, 1 teaspoon salt and several grinds of pepper. Finely grate 1 garlic clove into the mixture, then stir to combine. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  • Lightly grease a large (12-inch), oven-proof skillet with olive oil. To the bread crumbs, add the beef, Parmesan and chopped basil. Stir with your hands until combined, avoiding overmixing. Roll into 12 balls (about 2 heaping tablespoons/2 ounces each) and place them in the prepared skillet as you go. Broil the meatballs until browned and nearly cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Move the skillet to the stovetop. Add the marinara sauce, stir to coat the meatballs, and warm over medium-low heat while you toast the rolls: Place the rolls on a baking sheet, cut-side up, and broil until lightly golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Rub the cut sides of the roll with the second garlic clove.
  • Divide the meatballs and sauce among the rolls, then top with mozzarella. Broil until the mozzarella is melted and browned in spots, 1 to 2 minutes. Top with more grated Parmesan, basil leaves and black pepper.

Categories     main-dish

Time 55m

Yield 8 subs

Number Of Ingredients 16

2 pounds ground beef
1 cup unseasoned breadcrumbs
1 cup milk
1/4 cup grated onion
3 tablespoons finely minced fresh parsley
2 teaspoons kosher salt
2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1 large egg, beaten
Two 24-ounce jars store-bought marinara sauce
8 tablespoons (1 stick) salted butter, melted
2 cloves garlic, pressed
8 sub rolls
1 onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup torn fresh basil
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese


  • For the meatballs: Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • In a bowl, combine the ground beef and breadcrumbs. Add the milk, onion, parsley, salt, pepper, garlic and egg. Mix to combine.
  • Scoop out 2 tablespoons of the meatball mixture and roll into a ball. Continue with the remaining meatball mixture, making about 40 meatballs. Arrange the meatballs in a single layer in a large rectangular baking dish or foil pan. Bake, uncovered, until the meatballs are cooked through, about 25 minutes.
  • Pour the marina over the meatballs, then continue to bake until the sauce is heated through, about 10 minutes more. Toss the meatballs to coat in the sauce and set aside.
  • For the rolls: Turn the oven temperature down to 375 degrees F.
  • Stir together the butter and garlic in a small bowl. Tear off the tops of the rolls, creating a nice boat to hold the meatballs. Transfer the rolls and torn pieces to a baking sheet and brush generously with the garlic butter. Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
  • Build the meatball subs: Load 5 meatballs into each roll. Spoon over some of the sauce. Top with some onions and sprinkle over the basil and Parmesan. Serve with more sauce and the toasted bread pieces.
  • Reheating instructions: Reheat the meatballs in a pan, covered, at 350 degrees F until warmed through, about 25 minutes.

  • Creamy Coleslaw. Coleslaw always makes a good pairing with any sandwich, and a meatball sub is no exception. The refreshing salad offers mild flavors that contrast the heaviness of the sub.
  • Pasta Salad. Here’s another light and refreshing side that pairs well with meatball subs: pasta salad. What I love about this dish is its versatility. You can customize it to suit your preferences, as long as you stick to one basic formula: al dente pasta + veggies + protein + fats + herbs and spices + salad dressing.
  • Chips and Salsa. Give our American-Italian dish a Mexican flair by eating it with some chips and salsa! The crispness of the chips offers a wonderful contrast to the tenderness of the sub, making them an excellent pair.
  • Baked Potato Wedges. Okay, I know I’m breaking my rule here of serving light dishes with a meatball sub. But we all know that potatoes are the epitome of side dishes!
  • Salad. Now, going back to light sides for a meatball sub, here’s another one: salad. Not only is it easy to make and nutritious, but it also gives a nice crunch that complements the sub well.
  • Desserts. This section is for sweet-tooths like me who can’t end their meals without dessert. With something as heavy as a meatball sub, though, you’ll want to go light on the dessert (or not).
  • Fruits. A meatball sub is already heavy in calories, so how about just a simple fruit to end your meal? Give your palate something refreshing such as a few slices of apples, pears, watermelon, honeydew, oranges, mangoes, or peaches.
  • Shortcake. You can also transform your fruit into a simple shortcake. Here’s how: layer some ladyfingers (or biscuits, or cookies, the options are endless), your favorite fruit (strawberries, mangoes, peaches, whatever you have), and whipped cream.
  • Brownies. Okay, I know brownies are sinful, but it’s an excellent way to end any meal, meatball sub included. It’s rich, decadent, and downright amazing.
  • Chocolate Cake. It’s another sinful dessert, I know, but you can never go wrong with ending a meal with chocolate! So go ahead, indulge yourself, and have a slice.

  • Start with a thawed package of Gardein beefless ground (or similar brand of your choice), so either leave it in the fridge over night (best option) or remove the contents of the package into a large mixing bowl and let it sit on the counter until it's thawed.
  • Caramelized onions are going to be part of the binder for the beefless ground. To start, thinly slice the onion and sauté in a pan with coconut oil over medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add in sea salt and stir to coat the onions. Don't stir them much to allow them to brown and let them cook in the pan for another 10 minutes. Add in a teaspoon of agave nectar to add some more sugar to the pan, and toss again to coat all the onions. Sauté for another 5 to 10 minutes to get them caramelized and golden brown.
  • Add onions to a food processor along with black beans (drained and rinsed) and blend into a smooth paste. Then add this to a large bowl.
  • While the pan is hot and over medium heat, add the beefless ground and sauté until browned up and cooked through. Add this to the bowl with onions, and beans and add the vital wheat gluten and spices. Combine the mixture together with your hands or a spatula.

Add the basil, thyme, oregano and bay leaves and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the wine and sugar and bring to a boil. Cook until most of the wine is evaporated, 3 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes. Cover partially and cook, stirring frequently, until thickened, 30 minutes. Discard the bay leaves.
  • Preheat the oven to 400° and brush 2 rimmed baking sheets with olive oil. In a medium skillet, heat the 1 tablespoon of olive oil.

  • Add the bread crumbs to the bowl with the cheese, eggs, milk, salt and parsley. Add the pork and beef and knead gently until combined.

  • Heat 1/4 cup olive oil on high heat in a pan and add onions and garlic. Stir frequently until tender. Reduce heat and add canned tomatoes and tablespoon of butter. Let simmer for one hour, stirring occasionally.
  • In a large bowl mix the pork and beef. In a separate bowl soak the bread in milk and fold that into the meat. Then add the dried seasoning, eggs and bread crumbs. Mix thoroughly until all the elements are blended together.
  • Form the meat into three ounce balls. In a skillet heat the remaining oil and sear off the meatballs on both sides in batches of four to ensure you don't overcrowd the pan. Cook for about three minutes per side and use a spoon to baste the meatballs to help brown the entire ball. Once you have seared all the meatballs, place them into sauce on a low simmer for one to two hours until tender. To build your sandwich, spread bomba sauce on both sides of the bread roll, then layer with cheese, fill with saucy meatballs and lightly olive oil and salt dressed arugula. Finish with fresh parmesan cheese.
