Meatball Subs

Don't you just love meatball subs... warm delicious meatballs soaked in sauce, with lots of melty cheese on top... YUM :)  who doesn't love them right....
There are lots of variations you can  use ground turkey or chicken, or use ground pork or add a little sausage to the meat mixture...lots of variations on the sauce too... use what you like, marinara, homemade leftover sauce, leftover chili whatever.... and the cheese use what you like I sometimes add shredded parmesan on top of the mozzerella for additional flavor.. it all works and works well... enjoy

Meatball subs

1 lb. ground beef
1/4 onion, very finely minced
1/4 bell pepper, very finely minced
1/2 pkg. onion soup mix
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
1 cup spaghetti sauce (or marinara)
shredded mozzerella cheese
sub buns (or hotdog buns)

seasonings of your choice ( I used garlic powder, Italian seasoning and red pepper flakes)

Place all ingredients (except sauce, cheese and buns) into large bowl.  Mix well shaping into small meatballs.  Bake on a greased oven sheetpan for around 20-25 minutes.  Remove from oven.  In sauce pan place spaghetti sauce add cooked meatballs, heating until sauce is heated and bubbly.  Preheat oven to broil.  Line a baking sheet with foil place buns on pan.  Spoon meatballs with a little sauce over (don't put too much sauce or the bread will become soggy) top with shredded mozzerella cheese.  Broil 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted.  Remove from oven and enjoy.
