Thursday: Meatball Heroes
I know that we don’t really need a recipe for this but a plan for assembly might help. So, here goes. And, no, I do not serve a vegetable with this as it's huge and I would just end up cooking and storing them – “Ain’t nobody got time for that!”
Serves: 4 Prep: 5 Cooking: 25
1 jar of quality, low sugar marinara such as Rao’s or Trader Joe’s
4 hero or sub rolls
8 slices good provolone
4 oz shredded mozzarella
Remove meatballs from the freezer and allow to thaw in the fridge all day or on the counter for an hour.
In a large sauce pan or pot, heat sauce over medium high heat.
Reduce heat to medium and add meatballs.
Cook until thoroughly warmed through.
Meanwhile, split open the rolls and layer two pieces of provolone on each.
Place on a sheet pan and place 6-8” from the broiler for 3-4 minutes – watch them as everyone’s is different.
Remove from oven and place 3-4 meatballs on each roll.
Sprinkle with mozzarella and then back in the oven, under the broiler for another 3-4 minutes.
Serve heroes with a side of extra sauce.
