Tricia’s Meatball Subs
Posted By Tricia H On October 28, 2010 @ 5:45 pm In batch cooking,Beef,Meat,Recipes | 7 Comments
“Mama? When are we having meatball subs again?”
Talk about simple. Plus delicious and filling. And just four ingredients to happy tummies. It’s a hit in my family – with five children, ranging from preschoolers to teens.
You can use a bag of frozen, store-bought meatballs. I use homemade because they are better for you and taste delicious
I recently socked away some meatballs and meatloaves when I did a bit of big-shop cooking . I invested about half an hour forming the meatballs by hand. Here’s a quick run down on the meatball batch:
Mix all ingredients and form meatballs by hand. I placed them on a cookie sheet to freeze then later moved them to a zip top freezer bag.
• Meatballs – enough for your family (ours equaled $3.33- a splurge on Angus Beef)
• Spaghetti sauce – your favorite ($0.98 Hunts Garlic & Herb)
• 1 cup mozzarella cheese ($0.97)
• Hoagie (4) or hot dog buns (8) (2 packs for $0.99)
Total = $6.27 for our family of seven. Plus leftovers for Dad’s lunch!
Top with spaghetti sauce and cheese.
Easy to fix. Easily becomes a favorite.
Any leftover meatballs can be served over spaghetti another night. In fact, a fellow homeschool mother brought us this meal with an accompanying zip top storage bag full of cooked spaghetti noodles. Now I make sure I make batches of meatballs so I am ready to do the same. For more specific details on this round of meatballs and meatloaves, see Basic Beef .
