Recipe: Mini Meatball Subs

By Stilettosanddiaperbags @Sadbblog

My family is forever on the hunt for yummy meals we can alter to fit our diet and mix it up a bit over at the Fergus household. My husband came across this recipe for mini meatball subs over on Allrecipes so we decided to swap a few ingredients and make it gluten free so our son could enjoy it too! Here are the ingredients as listed on Allrecipes.

We mixed it up by subbing for grass fed beef, organic cheese and eggs, gluten free crackers, organic veggies, and gluten free bread too.
Directions: 
  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Combine ground beef, onion, green pepper, crackers, and egg in a large bowl. Season with Worcestershire sauce, garlic, seasoned salt, and pepper; mix well. Form mixture into 8 meatballs. Place meatballs in a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  3. Bake meatballs in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Pour the spaghetti sauce into a large saucepan; bring to a simmer over low heat. Stir baked meatballs into the simmering sauce. Do not turn oven off. Simmer sauce until meatballs are fully cooked, about 20 minutes.
  4. Place one meatball, a sprinkle of mozzarella, a sprinkle of Parmesan, and a bit of sauce between each roll. Place sandwiches in hot oven; bake until cheeses melt, about 7 minutes.
