Meatball Sub Recipe

How to Make a Meatball Sub


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine beef, onion, garlic, bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Roll into large meatballs.
  2. Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan on medium heat. Brown meatballs on all sides. Add pasta sauce and reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes, until meat is cooked through.
  3. Preheat oven to 160°C (140°C fan forced).
  4. Place a quarter cup of shredded mozzarella cheese into each hot dog roll and top with 3-4 meatballs. 
  5. Place meatball subs on a lined baking tray. Bake just until cheese is just melted (approximately 5 minutes). Remove and drizzle each bun with a tablespoon of pesto and sprinkle with shredded parmesan.
  6. Garnish with torn fresh basil leaves and season with salt and pepper to taste.
