When you have leftover meatballs all you need is:
Italian panini buns
Sorry, no quantities for this recipe, it all depends on how many meatballs you have and how many subs you want to make. I was only making 2 here so I started with 8 Italian meatballs.
Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray. The buns will stand up nicely in it.
Heat the meatballs in your favourite tomato sauce.
While that is simmering, heat a frying pan and add a tablespoon or 2 of olive oil and butter. Fry up some sliced onions and de-glaze the pan with a splash of balsamic vinegar.
Split the buns, but not all the way through. Fill with meatballs, fried onions and tomato sauce.
Top with some shredded mozzarella and sprinkle some parmesan on too if you like.
Bake them in the oven at 400 F until cheese is melted and the bun is warm and crispy.
A salad on the side finishes this quick meal off right.
I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!
