Hot Meatball Subs

From our friends at The Six O'Clock Scramble

Fun and familiar kid pleasing recipe for the whole family
Prep + Cook Time: 25  minutes

1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 large yellow onion, peeled, halved and sliced into half rings
1 large green or red bell pepper, sliced
26 oz. red pasta sauce or tomato sauce
2 (8 oz) boxes of Mom Made's antibiotic-free Beef & Cheese Meatball Bites
6 small oblong soft French bread sandwich rolls, use whole wheat rolls for added nutrition
4 oz. sliced or shredded provolone or mozzarella cheese

Preheat broiler and line a baking sheet with foil.  In a large heavy skillet, heat oil over medium heat add sliced onions and bell pepper half rings cook, stirring occasionally, until browned and soft, 15 - 20 minutes. Season as needed with salt & pepper. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, heat sauce over medium to medium-high heat.  Add Mom Made Beef & Cheese Meatball Bites and simmer gently for 10 - 15 minutes. 


Carefully cut along the length of each sandwich roll, trying to avoid slicing all the way through so the halves remain attached.  Put several cooked meatballs and some sauce inside each roll and top with cooked onions, peppers and cheese.  Put the sandwiches on the baking sheet, with fillings facing up, and broil for 2 - 3 minutes until the cheese is melted and the rolls are slightly browned.  Serve them hot.

Do Ahead or Delegate: Slice the onion and the bell pepper.

Scramble Flavor Booster: Sprinkle the baked sandwiches with crushed red pepper flakes or hot pepper sauce, such as Tabasco, for a spicy bite and sprinkle with grated parmesan for added flavor.
