Meatball Subs

This is seriously one of the easiest but still super delicious dinners we do around here. I suppose you could make it more complicated by doing homemade marinara & meatballs from scratch but that kinda kills the quick-and-easy appeal of this one! Just toss your fixings in the crock post around lunch time & by dinner all you have to do is serve it up!

The shopping list:

Frozen meatballs (I get the enormous bag of Italian Style from Costco), a jar of your favorite marinara (my absolute all-time favorite jarred sauce has to be Newman's Own Sockarooni!), some hoagie rolls & shredded Parmesan (not the powdered kind - you want something that will melt down over it). Provolone or Mozzarella slices would also be great!

Throw the meatballs & sauce in the crock pot. I use about 8 meatballs per sub (this time that was 32 - one jar of sauce is the perfect amount for this many meatballs, resulting in 4 full-sized subs).

Give them a stir, put the lid on & walk away for about 6 hours (on low). Stir them a time or two as they go. This isn't totally essential, though, so if you've got somewhere to be just ignore them altogether! They won't mind.

When you're ready to eat just toast up your buns & add the meatballs.

Add some cheese & either just close it & let the heat melt it a bit or pop it under the broiler for a minute to get a good, gooey melt!

Now wasn't that easy!!??

Dinner is SERVED!
