The Best meatball Sub!

Okay…. Rainy days need a push back and what’s better than comfort food?!
Homemade meatball sub was the cure last night!
Homemade meatballs cooked in the sauce is the only way to go.

Half pound lean ground beef
Half pound ground pork
Salt and pepper to taste (always to taste! I love David Rocco’s Italian term. Quanto Basta- when enough is enough)
Garlic approx 2 buds finely diced
Dice finely red onion approx 1/2 cup
Italian seasoning (special blend)
Olive oil
Bread crumbs (half Panko, half regular)
1 large organic egg
1 large and 1 small can of tomato sauce or your favorite Italian crushed tomatoes.

In a large bowl add in both ground beef and pork, add salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, garlic and diced onion and mix.
Add in egg, parm and bread crumbs and mix together all ingredients.
Form into the size meatball that you desire and place aside.
Warm up a large pot with olive oil. Place carefully each meatball in and carefully brown all sides.
Once all the meatballs are browed add in the tomatoes /tomato sauce and carefully mix. Simmer for approx 1 hour and 15 minutes until all the flavors have melded and the sauce ha thickened.

Pick your favorite bread, an Italian blend of provolone, mozzarella and parmigiana cheese and build your master piece.
You can melt your cheese and heat your bread by quickly broiling or a few minutes to melt the cheese and crisp the read in a 350 degree oven.
Purists will say stop now but creative palates sometimes want more toppings. This is truly what I mean when I say “make it your own” “make it from the heart and soul”
You know what you like… Take the basic perfect recipe and kick it your way….
This was the perfect dish last night to warm up the kids from a rainy soccer night.
Let me know your thoughts… I want your feedback and most of all Enjoy! “you gotta have it”
Buon appetite

    may as well check things out. I like what I see so now i’m following you. Look forward to checking out your web page for a second time.

  4. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly.

    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.

    I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.


  5. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the
    layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way
    of content so people could connect with it better. Youve
    got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?


  6. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into
    any internet browser compatibility problems?

    A few of my blog visitors have complained
    about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks
    great in Safari. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this issue?


  7. I feel this is among the most vital information for me.
    And i am satisfied reading your article. But should remark on
    some common things, The site taste is wonderful, the articles is truly excellent : D.
    Good activity, cheers


  8. An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto
    a friend who had been doing a little homework on this.
    And he actually bought me dinner due to the fact that I discovered it for him…

    lol. So let me reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending some time to discuss this subject here on
    your internet site.


  9. Your style is so unique compared to other folks I have read stuff from.
    Thanks for posting when you have the opportunity, Guess I’ll just bookmark this blog.


  10. Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and
    say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as
    well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any tips for first-time blog writers?

    I’d really appreciate it.
