Sandwich Week: Meatball Sub Sandwich

August 11, 2011

This is one of those sandwiches where you'll really need a napkin.  Half the fun of eating a meatball sub is maneuvering the mess.  There are no pre-packaged meatballs in this recipe, just one made by hand.  If you don't want to use ground beef, go ahead and substitute it with ground pork or turkey.  This is a dinner that will please everyone, especially the little ones.
