  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup grated or shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp oregano dried
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil can substitute 1 TBSP dried basil, if you'd like)

You'll also need the following~

  • 5 rolls I like to use French Rolls
  • 2 cups Marinara sauce
  • 10 slices provolone cheese
  • 1 cup Mozzarella cheese shredded

Instructions

To make homemade baked meatballs

  • To make homemade meatballs, first you need to preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Mix all of the meatball ingredients together, by hand.  
  • Scoop golf ball sized meatballs out using a small cookie scoop. and place on a foil lined baking pan, approximately one inch apart. Bake for 30 minutes.

To assemble Meatball Subs

  • While the meatballs are in the oven, warm up the marinara sauce on the stove over medium heat.  Place 2-3 slices of provolone cheese on the bottom of each roll, then place 3 baked meatballs on top of the cheese. 
  •  Top each sandwich with the warm marinara sauce and sprinkle mozzarella cheese and fresh basil on top, if desired. Serve immediately.
