Melty Meatball Sammies

These are always a request by my husband and they are really good!! I love sammies, because you can make a million different combos, but this one is great! Perfect if you have left over meatballs, but if you don't have any they come together in no time!! SO GOOD!


1/2 lb. ground turkey (makes about 3 sammies, double for more!)

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 cup bread crumbs

handful of Parmesan cheese

1/4 cup chopped onion ( I grate it because Rex isn't a huge fan of onion chunks)

a squeeze of ketchup

salt and pepper

1/2 cup pasta sauce, whatever you have in the fridge

a loaf of french bread, sliced into long sandwich pieces

mozzarella cheese


1. Make the meatballs: mix meat, breadcrumbs, onion, garlic powder, parm cheese, ketchup and a bit of salt and pepper in a bowl. Using a little cookie scoop, scoop out balls and place on a foil lined cookie sheet, sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake at 450 for about 12 min.

2. While they are cooking, cut bread and spread each slice with some pasta sauce (don't use all of it we need a little more for later!) When the meatballs are done toss them in a bowl with remaining pasta sauce. You can make them as saucy as you like!

3. Cut each ball in half and place on bread. Top with mozzarella cheese and pop under the broiler for a few minutes. Sprinkle with parsley and you are ready to eat!! I pair these sandwiches with salad or broccoli and you are set! Enjoy!

  1. Ooh! Kyle would love these. I really need to start printing and cooking some of your dinner recipes. Now that it's fall I can do the warm stuff.
