Homemade turkey meatball sub sandwiches. 'Nuff said.

(In all honesty, I just don't have any witty ideas for this post tonight.)

Saucy Turkey Meatball Sub
Source: The Carb Lovers Diet Cookbook, by Ellen Kunes

  • 2 c. marinara sauce (used no-salt added from TJs)
  • 1 lbs ground turkey (used lean)
  • 3/4 c. fresh bread crumbs (yes, I took a piece of bread and crumbed it up in the processor. Really.)
  • 1/3 c. grated cheese
  • 3/4 c. finely grated carrot (skipped - ran out of carrots)
  • 1/4 c. finely chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • salt, pepper, cooking spray, buns
  • Place sauce in a med saucepan and keep warm on low.
  • Combine turkey through pepper in a bowl and mix with hands until well combined. Form into 16 equal meatballs.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over med-high heat. Brown balls on all sides, approx 5-6 mins.
  • Add meatballs to sauce, increase heat to medium and simmer until meatballs have absorbed some of the sauce and are heated through, approx. 10-15 mins.
  • Spoon 4 meatballs and some sauce onto a bun and sprinkle with 1 tbsp cheese (used mozzarella instead).
I very rarely make sandwiches for dinner, but even with this whole recipe no-repeat challenge thing I have going on, I often find myself making the same types of dishes. This def switched things up a bit, much to the delight of both boys - they loved the sub. Much to the dismay of both boys I paired this with zucchini fries. Yum-o for me, Sun Chips for them.
