I made these yummy meatball hoagies Monday night for dinner. They were so delicious and easy - great dinner for a work night.
1 pound ground beef
3/4 cup bread crumbs
2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg, beaten
hoagie rolls (I got mine in the bakery section at my grocery store)
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 pinch salt, or to taste
1 (14 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
2 Cups Motzarella cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a medium bowl, gently mix by hand the ground beef, bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, garlic, parsley, Parmesan cheese, and egg. Shape into 12 meatballs, and place in a baking dish.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until cooked through. Take the hoagie rolls and remove some of the bread from the inside to make a well for the meatballs. Brush with olive oil, and season with garlic powder and Italian seasonings. Slip the hoagie rolls into the oven during the last 5 minutes of the meatball's time, or until lightly toasted.
While the bread toasts, warm the spaghetti sauce in a saucepan over medium heat. When the meatballs are done, use a slotted spoon to transfer them to the sauce. Spoon onto the baguette and top with a handful of motzarella cheese. Return to the oven for 2 to 3 minutes to melt the cheese.
Serve with fries and a salad and enjoy!
