Italian Meatball Sub Sandwich

Gameday!  Time for a quick sandwich to make before the game begins ~

Italian Meatball Sub Sandwich ~

Italian Meatballs

1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1 large egg slightly beaten
1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
1 tsp Italian seasonings
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Mix all of the ingredients together until completely blended.  I chose to bake them because of the large quantity but you can also fry them.  I made them on the small side for sandwiches.

Makes 26 meatballs.  
Bake for 30 minutes at 350°F.

Heat your favorite red pasta sauce for the sandwich and extra for dipping.  Toast the inside of your submarine buns so they don't get soggy from the sauce and top with mozzarella cheese.  Serve warm.

The games have begun ~ enjoy!
