I just noticed, how much sandwiches run my life. I think this is my fourth…maybe fifth recipe box about a sandwich of some type and lest we forget the Skinny-wiches Must Dine post! Why are they so easy to make and so damn tasty!!! I also think I’m a closet Italian…but we won’t go over my love of pasta and pasta sauce either. Enter my latest kitchen creation…the meatball sammie!!!!
It’s like the hoagie took a trip to Italy and got all fancy.
Serving size: 6
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes
Hawaiian Sweet Rolls Hoagies
Your favorite pasta sauce (I used traditional Prego)
Mozzarella or Sharp Cheddar cheese
1 pound ground turkey (you know I don’t do the beef)
1 tablespoon of butter
Half an onion (chopped)
One garlic clove (minced)
Salt and Pepper
Heat skillet and coat with butter. Toast hoagie rolls and set aside.
In a medium sized bowl, add ground turkey, spices, chopped onions, and minced garlic. If you want to get real fancy, add a splash of red wine and mix all ingredients well.
Heat skillet on medium to high heat and coat with olive oil
Scoop 1/4 cup sized balls of meat (makes about 12-15) and add to skillet. Rotate balls every 3-5 minutes to cook thoroughly. Add pasta sauce and reduce heat. Cover with lid and let simmer for 10-15 minutes.
Assemble sandwiches by first adding cheese, then sauce, then meatballs, then cheese, topped with more sauce.
Eat and enjoy!
**Tastes great with kettle chips or veggie chips!**
