Meatballs subs


Ok I have to just say it–I love these turkey meatball subs. I do not eat much beef any more because I am always looking for lower fat alternatives to help in the fight against high cholesterol.  Two weeks ago after weeks of experimenting with old middle eastern dishes that we have not had for years and new dishes that sounded interesting, I went back on a mission of making basic and hearty! I bought some ground turkey and tossed in things that sounded good, but quite honestly it is still about the kids! I added basics that I know they will like and that will guarantee a big winner!  When the kids were growing up, I often made 2-3 dishes each day, in order to please everyone. With 11 people to feed there were many different opinions and so I made variety. While those days are over I still try to make things that most of the 6 kids still at home, will like. This sub was a huge hit,  no one talked, argued or even laughed during our after school meal. They are delicious!!



2 pounds ground turkey

1 1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp. garlic salt

1 tsp. basil

1/2 tsp oregano

2 eggs

1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs

1 green bell pepper sliced

1 onion chopped

Marinara sauce of your choice– see Lynz marinara sauce recipe under favorite recipes.

Mozzarella cheese– grated

Sub buns

In a saute pan place olive oil, peppers and onions. Saute until soft and cooked.

Put milk and bread crumbs into a bowl and mix with a spoon.

Put ground turkey into a bowl, add salt,garlic salt, basil, oregano.

Add eggs and milk mixture. Mix all ingredients well.

Spray a large baking pan with cooking spray. Take a handful of turkey and roughly shape into a ball, do not form or roll. Place on greased cooking sheet. Finish all of the turkey making meatballs. Place in oven for approximately 45 minutes or until well cooked and done. Remove meatballs from oven. Add cooked meatballs to marinara sauce in a pan on the stove and simmer.  Turn oven off to toast buns.

Place buns on a clean cookie sheet and put into oven ( should still be warm)  to toast. Leave for 2-3 minutes and then remove. Put mozzarella cheese on bun. Spoon out meatballs and sauce and place on bun over cheese. Put desired amount of pepper and onion mixture on bun.
