Homemade Meatball Marinara Sandwiches

Growing up, I don't think my mom ever bought a bag of frozen meatballs.
Really. Like ever.
She always made homemade meatballs and they always tasted like they took 10 hours to make.
Little did I know how easy these bad boys really are to make.
I've chosen to post my recipe for making them in sandwiches but really once you make the meatballs, the possibilities are endless.
My mom used to put them in a crockpot with marinara sauce and let it soak in all day til dinner time.
You can put them on spaghetti, make sandwiches, eat them plain... whatever your heart desires!
Hunter totally approves of these. He eats three sandwiches per sitting.
Good thing the recipe makes a lot!
So thanks for passing this recipe down mom, it's a fav over here!


  • About a pound and a half of ground beef. (a little less or a little more is totally fine)
  • 1 Large egg
  • A Heaping half cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs (I usually put a little more in depending on how much ground beef I have)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 tsp italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • Completed meatballs
  • Hoagie rolls
  • Marinara Sauce
  • Provolone cheese

1) Put all ingredients in medium mixing bowl

2)  Mix all ingredients together. Using your hands works best, just make sure you take your rings off!

3) Take a little meat at a time and use your hands to make them in a ball shape. Put them in a lightly greased cupcake tin.

4) Bake them at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes.

Ta Da! All Done!
Now to turn them into sandwiches:

5) Set your oven to Broil. While it's heating assemble 3 meatballs on the bottom roll. Layer marinara over that. Then add a slice (cut in half) of provolone cheese. Butter the top half of your bread and stick under the broiler for a few minutes. (until slightly browned)

6) Put the top roll on top and eat up! :)

That's all folks!
Super easy and super delish.
Happy eating!

All my love,
Aleigh Joy
