Not Hyperbole Dinner [meatball subs]

I speak in hyperbole and absolutes almost all the time.  AGOMYR made a good point once that telling 15 people, “I love you the most,” cannot possibly be true.

So I’d understand if you didn’t believe me when I told you that I just made the easiest, and best dinner ever.

But I really did.


Meatball subs.

I love meatballs to the ends of the Earth, and when I saw this on Pinterest, I knew it would be dinner soon.  I found some cooked chicken sausage meatballs at the grocery store (with the prepackaged coldcuts), which endlessly simplified things.  I spent about 95% of the time these were under the broiler gushing about how excited I was to eat them. They’re amazing. Though they fed our little family well, I can also see these being a great go-to for bigger families. 

To make meatball subs you will need:

  • Rolls
  • Meatballs (we used sausage meatballs)
  • Marinara sauce
  • Slices of your favorite cheese 
  • Parmesan

Heat the broiler of your oven before assembling your dinner. Dig a little well in each of the rolls, large and deep enough to hold the meatballs. (Bonus: extra bread for snacking!) Line the well with slices of cheese. I did one slice thick, but I’d go crazy and double it up next time. All the cheese! Put meatballs over the cheese slices, and spoon marinara over the meatballs and into the crevices. Put sandwiches on a baking sheet, and broil till meatballs are hot, and cheese is melted and maybe even slightly browned. For me, this took about 7 minutes, but with anything under the broiler, you want to watch it carefully. When subs are done, remove from the oven, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
