Shopping List: Makes
1- Package of King’s Hawaiian Mini Sub Rolls
1- Package of Sweet Italian Sausage
1- Medium Onion, Chopped Fine
2-3 Peppers (Yellow, Orange and Red)
2- 15oz. Cans of Tomato Sauce
1- 6oz. Can of Tomato Paste
1-Tablesppon of: Crushed Red Pepper, Garlic Salt
2-Tablespoons of Italian Seasoning
1- Cup of Fresh Basil Leaves, Chopped fine
1-Package of Sliced Mozzarella – Provolone Cheese
Equipment: 2 mixing bowls, Small pot with lid, Fry Pan
Cooking Steps: Veggie & Sauce Prep
Chop all veggies and fresh Basil to a fine chop. Place this
veggie medley in a stand-bye bowl to be added later with ingredients. Next,
empty your Tomato Sauce and Paste into a mixing bowl and add dry ingredients
(Italian Seasoning, Garlic Salt and Crushed Red Pepper). Mix well. Grease the
base of your cooking pot with olive oil and place on a LOW heat and empty sauce
into pot. Cover with lid. Stir sauce every 5 minutes to avoid burning.
Next Step, Meatball
Take a large mixing bowl and remove sausage from it’s casing
and crumble sausage into the mixing bowl. Take the veggie medley and slowly mix
the sausage with the veggie medley. Add approx. 1 1/2- cups into the sausage
mix. You may add a tablespoon of Olive oil to help make the sausage mixture
blend faster. Mix the ingredients by hand and make sure you have the veggies
and herbs blended well throughout the sausage.
Since we are making a meatball sandwich, it is important to
make the right size of meatball. I like to make mine slightly smaller than a
golf ball because I am able to fit more meatballs in my sandwich. The best way
to measure the right size is to use your hands. Simply take some sausage mix
into your palm and form a ball in the base of the palm of your hand. When done,
set the finished meatball aside and repeat the steps until all of the mix is
Next Step: Fry Pan
Lightly grease a fry pan with some olive oil and add the
meatballs into the fry pan on Med/ High heat. When all meatballs are placed on
the pan, take a lid and cover the meatballs. The lid helps trap heat, which
also cuts down time on cooking. Rotate each meatball every 5-7 minutes. You
should be able to cook all the meatballs within 15- 18 minutes.
When you have completed the sausage rotation, pour all of
your sauce from the pot into the meatball fry pan as seen in the video. Stir
sauce into the meatball pan slowly and lower heat to LOW setting, cover with
lid for another 5- 8 minutes.
Ready to Serve
Take your King’s Hawaiian, Mini Sub roll and place a couple
slices of cheese in the roll. Add a scoop of sauce and meatballs on the roll
and you now have my Meatball Sandwich!
