Meatball subs. I love em’, meatballs are definitely one of my comfort foods. But seriously who can eat them without making a mess? They practically demand that you drip sauce down your chin. And my 7 year old wearing his clean baseball uniform? That was a recipe for disaster, so these open faced sandwiches were my solution.
The kids immediately asked if they should use a fork to eat them. Umm..yes, please don’t try to balance a round meatball on a flat piece of bread.
How good were these? My husband walked in, saw them, picked one up and asked “You done taking pictures?” as he polished one off. I barely could answer before he had grabbed the other one, mumbling “so good”. (He was able to eat them by hand neatly, I know you’re impressed).
So no more pictures.
The meatballs I prepared in the morning, and they had been simmering away all day in the slow cooker, making the house smell great. With the meatballs taken care of, these literally went together in 5 minutes, tossed them under the broiler and I was done. I served it up with a big salad.
Cut up some nice big slices of crusty bread.
I happened to have leftover pepper pesto, but these would be great with regular pesto too. Slather it on.
Plop two meatballs (or 3 or 4) on top, with a bit of tomato sauce.
Top with sliced provolone.
Pop under the broiler for about 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melty and starting to brown.
