MEATBALL SUBS - Recipes Website




Tender and flavorful meatballs braised in a tomato and basil sauce and served in a toasty baguette with melty cheese.

If you know how they mean you can reach into someone’s heart bypassing into their stomach? I accept this wholeheartedly and I’m sure my husband married me because of this meatball sub.

Who doesn’t want tender, juicy homemade meatballs braised in a tangy-sweet tomato gravy and crammed into a buttery toasted bun with plenty of melty cheese? Even though meatball subs are an inanimate entity, I adore them!

It’s a reasonable deal, however, because baguettes might have been a factor in my marriage to Mike. Baguettes are one of my favorite items. I assume it’s partly due to the fact that they’re French and partly due to the fact that they’re delicious. The crackle-y crisp deep gold crust and tender insides are my favorites. As Mike went on a trip to France, I even begged him to carry me a baguette.

The irony is that we weren’t really planning on heading out at the moment, but I was just asking as a friend. And he came through! Maybe that’s when I start to fall in love. I had totally forgotten about the baguette when we met up after his ride, but he had one for me, still in its paper bag, smashed and more than a little stale. But it was there, and I had an authentic baguette for the first time in my life!
