Mozzarella Meatball Yellow Submarine

Mozzarella Meatball Subs

So, as you may be able to tell, I'm not as good with the camera as my better half. Colleen is up at her family's tonight, but before I can join her I have to go to work tomorrow morning. When you've been together for a while, you always get a little nervous about sleeping by yourself. I'm curious to see if I sleep better or worse tonight...

This is how we sleep

Our roommates are up playing a wedding today, so with all of them out of the house, I'm going to show you how our roommates' dog and I kick it bachelor style with our meatball sub recipe.

I'm also making a ham-fisted pun on the Yellow Submarine movie the Beatles made in the 60s. If you didn't catch that, welcome to the internet! I am a Nigerian prince with a business proposal I believe you might be interested in.

Ok, meatball sub recipe time. I'm treating this like a leftovers recipe, even though I ended up whipping up a couple of fresh meatballs this time. If you haven't already made your meatballs, check out our awesome Meatball Recipe.

Everything that goes in the meatballs

  • Cheese-Filled Meatballs
  • Sub Roll
  • More Cheese
  • Pepperoni
  • Assorted Spices (whatever you've got lying around)
  • Red Peppers
  • Onions
  • Mustard
  • Olive Oil
  • Black Olives? Marinara Sauce?


If it looks like this, you did it right.
I don't really have to spell it out for you, do I? Pepperoni on the sub. Step one complete.

Cheese on the sub. Step two complete.

Spices on the sub. Ok, ok. You get the picture. Pop that in the toaster oven (or failing that the regular oven) and cook it for a few minutes at about 350 degrees. The pepperoni is already cooked, so you're really just toasting the bread and melting the cheese here. A little olive oil drizzled on top doesn't go amiss either.

While you're at it, fry up the peppers and onions in olive oil. Toss a little salt and pepper on there too, why not, right? And whether you're making new meatballs or heating up leftovers, toss them on here too. The veggies will benefit from a little fat on the frying pan, and your meatballs will be way better than if you put them through the microwave. I'm not a huge fan of microwaves in general.

Congratulations! You're done. You can add some black olives or some marinara sauce if you're feeling fancy - I would have if I had any. Hell, you can add anything you want, it's a damn sub, but they taste awesome just the way I had them too.

I know we said it was Borscht Yeltsin next. Have faith! We already made all the Borscht, pictures and everything, I promise. It'll just be a little bit longer before it ends up getting written up. How about the Meatball Sub recipe though, hmm? Pretty good, right?

They love it
