Easy Meatball Sub Recipe

I have been craving a Subway Meatball Sub for some time now. It is just not a restaurant we frequent much due to the boys food tastes. Hopefully, they will change their mind since I love eating there.

While walking around the store the other day, I saw a loaf of garlic herb french bread in the “Oops! We made too much” bin for 50 cents!!! This girl got a bright idea.

I went around and grabbed some sliced Provolone Cheese, frozen meatballs, and a jar of marinara sauce. I was going to make a meatball sub for lunch. YUM!

I told you this would be easy and it sure is!

The first step, warm up your marinara sauce with your frozen meatballs. Simply dump both into a saucepan and heat until the meatballs are heated.

While you are waiting for the meatballs to cook, heat up your oven to 350 degrees.

Once the oven is preheated and the meatballs are warmed up, cut your bread and lay it on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper.

Add your meatballs and sauce to the bottom section of your bread.

Then lay the slices of Provolone Cheese over the meatballs.

Place your sub in the oven for about 5 minutes. Just long enough to toast the bread slightly and melt the cheese.

Once your sub is done in the oven, put the top of your bread on and slice to the desired length to serve.

This was SO easy to make and it truly hit the spot.
