Italian Meatball Subs

This is one of my never fails go to dinners.  I love making these subs because they are so simple and I have most of the ingredients on hand at any given moment. You can make these the night before and heat them in the crock pot when you are at work.    My husband is not a fan of bell peppers but I think they would be a Delicious with some fresh sauteed sweet onions.  Simple, fast, and easy! 
  • 1 pound Italian sausage or chicken
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • Sliced provolone cheese
  • 1 jar favorite spaghetti sauce
  • 1 package hoagie rolls
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl stir together sausage, onion, egg, and bread crumbs. Form into 1" balls, place on cookie sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes. (The last couple times I have made these I flatten the meatballs slightly with a spoon.  Makes it a lot easier to eat when they are flatter!)Meanwhile place sliced cheese on each side of hoagie rolls. Add cooked meatballs to sauce pan, add jar of sauce,and heat until warm. Place hoagie rolls onto a new cookie sheet and place in oven until cheese melts. Add three meatballs to sandwich and enjoy.

Cookers Note: For a lighter meal use Jennie-O Italian sausage and substitute breadcrumbs for oatmeal. Just add extra Italian seasoning to your meat mixture. However, the full fat version is so much better! You can always make the meatballs and freeze them. Then when you are having company or you know you will be in a time crunch for dinner add the frozen meatballs with a jar of sauce into your crock-pot and cook on low while at work.
