Holy. cow. (Er..turkey?) These meatball sammies are absolutely mouth-watering!
Last week I tried my first meatball sub at a family birthday party and it was pretty good. It looked like something that would be easy to make from scratch and I was inspired to try it! After reading over a few meatball recipes, I whipped up this turky-fied version of this classic sub shop favorite.
Turkey Meatball Subs
1 lb ground turkey
1/2 onion, finely chopped
3/4 tsp garlic powder
1 large egg
1/3 cup breadcrumbs
1 jar marinara sauce
soft Italian rolls
1. In a medium-large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients (Onion powder and ketchup as desired, about 4 shakes of powder and a squirt of ketchup). Mix well and roll mixture into balls about 1in in diameter. (Mine made 28 meatballs).
2. Heat marinara sauce in a wide saucepan/pot. Try to use a pot that will allow the sauce to sit about 1-2 inches high (see photo below).
3. Place the meatballs in the marinara sauce and cover. Simmer for about 12 minutes, or until meatballs are cooked through.
4. Serve meatballs on toasted Italian rolls. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
