Meatball Subs


I am quite proud to say that my youngest daughter (11 yrs) is following in the footsteps of her family of foodies legacy. She not only enjoys eating, she truly appreciates the flavors, textures and aromas of food. She has gone from a picky eater when she was younger, never would “ANY” vegetable pass her lips, to a young lady with a sophisticated palate! I love watching her and two of my granddaughters (14 and 9) play food critics. They are so knowledgeable when it comes to critiquing the food and the comments they make on the “blending of tastes”, the textures, the aromas and the colors of the foods are on spot with any top food connoisseur. I think I just may have the next “female’ Guy Fierri here in my family!! 😉

While she has many favorite dishes in here repertoire, one of her all time favorites is Meatball Subs. While I hate to admit it, I do sometimes take her to Subway to satisfy her cravings for this favorite .(My head is hanging down in foodie shame!! LOL) But this past week we decided to have a cooking adventure together and make our own meatballs and marinara sauce for Meatball Subs. We had a great time in the kitchen (Plus watch Rango as we feasted on our yummy subs!) and I think my future food critic would say they turned out quite savory and delectable!


1 lb. lean ground beef

1 lb. hot Italian sausage

3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs

2 eggs

1/3 cup milk

1/4 cup dried parsley flakes

2 tbsp. dried basil

1 tbsp. dried oregano

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 tsp. black pepper

2 tsp. Lawry’s Seasoned salt

1 medium onion diced

Dash of hot sauce(optional)

Place all ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Shape into golf ball size balls and place into a large frying pan. Add 1/3 cup of water and cook over medium heat turning occasionally. Add small amounts of water as needed and cook until meat is cooked through, about 25-30 minutes.

When they are done place 6-8 meatballs onto roll of your choice. Top with marinara sauce and shredded pizza cheese blend(or cheese of your choice). These are also great to use for spaghetti and meatballs.
