I made this dinner last Saturday. It was soo delicious and easy to make. I first got inspired to make this cause of my husband. He loves the meatball subs from Subway.
Last week he really wanted a meatball sub. So we went to Subway and I go in to order it since someone has to stay with the sleepy toddler in the car. As I order it the worker there tells me that they are out of it since they didn't "make" them this afternoon. Mind you they were advertising 'May $5 Footlong subs'. Really, Subway worker? I would of accepted "we ran out of meatballs" excuse. But their excuse was pure laziness.
Well anyways. I felt bad that my husband didn't get his sub that night so I wanted to make one (and hopefully better than Subway)
So I went on a Pinterest search!(Duh! of course!) Many recipes sounded okay or way too complicated. And then I finally found one! An easy one! It involves a slow cooker too!
Easy Crockpot Meatball Subs Recipe is truly very easy. I was really glad that I was able to use my crock pot again.
In this recipe, you have the option to use grounded chicken or turkey. I used the grounded turkey and it came out yummy!
In the recipe they don't specify brands that they used.These brands were the only ones I could find while looking through a gazillion spices with a fussy toddler. The ones that I used were
Lawry's Roasted Garlic Salt and McCormick's Perfect Pinch Italian seasoning.
You can use any kind of bread but we used hoagie bread since it was on sale that week. You could fit 4 meatballs but we only did 3 per sub.
My apartment smelled lovely while making this meal. And my husband enjoyed this meal very much. He kinda hinted to make it again very soon.
