Homemade Meatball Subs are one of our favorite dinners! You can make the meatballs ahead of time and warm them up in the sauce, then assemble the sandwiches for a quick & easy weeknight dinner. Serve our meatball sub recipe with a side of any salad you like! To make homemade meatballs, first you need to preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. You can cook meatballs in a skillet on the stove, but baking them is easier and less messy! Next you’ll mix all the meatball ingredients together, by hand. You can use a rubber scraper if you’d like, but just make sure you thoroughly mix the ingredients. Scoop golf ball sized meatballs out using a small cookie scoop. and place on a foil lined baking pan, approximately one inch apart. You’ll be able to make 15 meatballs with this recipe. Bake for 30 minutes.
I use 3 type of cheese in this recipe. You’ll place 2 sliced of provolone cheese on the bottom of each meatball sub, then you’ll sprinkle the top of the sub with grated mozzarella cheese. I also use Parmesan cheese in my recipe for the baked meatballs. I was able to make 15 golf ball sized meatballs. At three meatballs per sub, I was able to make 5 subs.
