Another day, another new recipe! This one is a good comfort food staple–a meatball sandwich! It is simplified by having it cook in the crockpot. The original recipe from MOMables is made for 4-5 people and has you make extra sauce, which I didn’t think was needed. I also used hotdog buns for rolls, as I had some on hand. You can obviously use some classier rolls from the bakery.
Crockpot Meatball Sandwiches For 2
- 1/2 lb. of lean ground beef (or ground turkey)
- 2 tablespoons of bread crumbs
- 1/2 can of diced tomatoes (I used the normal 16oz Hunt’s one)
- 1/2 large egg (or egg substitute), lightly beaten
- 2 tbsp. of Italian Herb or oregano seasoning
- 1 tsp. of garlic powder seasoning
- 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 of an onion, diced
- about 12oz of pasta sauce
- Rolls or hot dog buns
- 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese or Parmesan for topping
- Place the diced onion evenly on the bottom of the crockpot.
- In a large bowl, mix together your ground beef or turkey, bread crumbs, egg, seasonings, and
- Roll mixture into approximately 1″ diameter balls and begin to place in
- Pour the half can of diced tomatoes over the meatballs.
- Pour enough pasta sauce over the meatballs, just to cover them.
- Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
- About 10 minutes before serving, heat your oven to about 400 degrees and toast the rolls or buns. After about 5 minutes, put your meatballs and some sauce into the rolls, sprinkle on mozzarella or Parmesan on top, and put back in the oven for about 3-4 min more.
