Meatball Subs

My dad and I were left home with no one to feed him but me, so I made a bunch of meatballs in marinara sauce to make meatball subs. We had this giant bag of hoagie rolls and the first thing I thought of to use them for were these subs. Since I didn't really want to go to the grocery store and buy anything else for this recipe, I just used some frozen ground beef we had and a recipe from my new Joy of Cooking cookbook. They turned out awesome and we had dinner for two nights in a row!

The first sub I consumed, I ended up making another!

Here's the recipe adapted from the Joy of Cooking.

Prep Time: 30 min | Cooking Time: 25 min | Difficulty: Easy | Serves: 6-8


1 pound ground beef
1 garlic clove, minced
2 Tbsp chopped parsley
1/2 cup grated Parmesan, plus more for topping
1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped (I ended up using a red one, because it was all we had, but go with the yellow)
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 large egg
2 Tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp dried oregano (I used fresh because we had it)
Flour, for dredging
2 Tbsp Olive oil, for frying
3/4 jar of marinara sauce

1. Mix it with for hands. Scoop out the mixture in heaping tablespoons and form into 2-inch balls. Dredge the meatballs in the flour. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

2. Brown the meatballs in batches. Place in a baking pan with the marinara sauce and cook in a preheated 375 degree oven for 10 minutes.
