Saucy tender meatballs smothered between Swiss and Provolone cheeses sandwiched in between crispy sourdough bread — this Italian Meatball Sub Sandwich will make anyone break out into a happy dance.
There is nothing quite like a really good sub sandwich. What makes sub sandwiches so awesome is the different ways they are prepared and that can vary based on where it was first created.
If you fill the length of a bread roll (that has been split down the middle) with any variation of meats, cheese, veggies, sauces, condiments, or splashes of vinegar, it is a submarine; better known as a sub.
Being from Louisiana, I grew up being very familiar with seafood po-boys, but today I will focus on one of my all-time favorites — the Italian Meatball Sub Sandwich. The sandwich was originally dated to be created in the United States around the turn of the century even though it has Italian flavors.
I couldn’t make up my mind on which type of cheese I would use between Swiss or Provolone so I figured I would use both. The more cheese the merrier! And the moist beef meatballs soaking in tomato sauce will make anyone break out into a happy dance.
Striking the perfect balance between the breadcrumbs and the beef ensures you deliver on tenderness.
A sub sandwich isn’t a sub without great bread and this buttery sourdough bun does this recipe justice.
Sourdough bread tends to have a hard yet crispy crust paired with a slightly tart/tangy taste with a texture similar to French bread. So when you are in the mood for a good and simple sub give this Italian Meatball Sub Sandwich a try and you will not regret it.
