Why a sub? Because I wasn’t interested in putting these meatballs over pasta. Luckily it’s hearty enough to hold it’s own. We have a house of serious eaters and they need to feel full. And of course, the kids love it because it’s a great hand held meal. Yup, any excuse to eat with their hands.

Typically, I keep it simple and make my meatballs nice and small so it fits in a hot dog bun. Oh yeah!! You like that right. If you’re making this for a party. Smaller meatballs might be your best bet. Not just because there’s more for the crowd but because there’s less possibility for a mess. Making it smaller keeps it hand held.

On the other hand, if you are looking for a completely satisfying dinner put this baby on a hoagie roll, toast it up and enjoy. You can even serve it with a side of potato wedges and a salad. Of course, a salad. LOL
