Meatball subs are commonly served in a baguette and then cut into serving pieces. Since I want to make them individual sliders, I used mini french rolls instead.

If you are pressed for time, you can use canned/bottled spaghetti sauce and that is just fine. Of course, making your own lets you personalize the sauce. Combining some techniques I use in my burger patty recipe and that from Allrecipes.com, here’s the recipe for my meatball sliders: (more…)
