This recipe is easy to put together ahead of time and let it sit in the crockpot all day and it will be ready when you get home! I made it on a Friday and both the boy and the male roomie loved it.
Meat Ball Subs
1 lb ground meat (I used turkey this time but sometimes I use beef or a mixture of beef and pork)
1 cup bread crumbs (the kind you buy in the store)
1 T Itailan Seasoning
2 T basil
1/2 t Red Pepper Flake (optional)
1 jar tomato sauce
4 sub rolls
Preheat oven to 400. Combine meat, bread crumbs, egg, spices and 1/2 cup sauce) in a bowl. I usually mix with my hands because it comes together easier. Form into golfball size balls and place on grease baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes you just want to brown the outside so that they don't fall apart in the crockpot. While they are baking, pour the rest of the jar of sauce into the crockpot, fill the empty jar about halfway with water and shake it up, then add the water to the crockpot. Add the meatballs to the crockpot. Cook on low for 4-6 hours. Put 4-5 meatballs on each subroll. Serve with salad.
