Slow Cooker Meatball Subs

I’m just going to say, I wasn’t a fan of Subway’s Meatball sandwich. It just wasn’t good to me. One of the girls at work brought meatball subs for treat day one time and they were just fantastic and changed mind. I made this recipe really simple.And yes, you can have a turkey meatball sub and still stay on track!

Go to the store, pick up a bag of 24 oz Turkey meatballs from Jeanie-0. There are a couple brands out there that do make lean turkey meatballs like Foster Farms. I couldn’t find them at all. Or if you’re feeling ambitious make your own turkey meatballs at home.  Come home, turn on the slow cooker. Dump the marinara sauce into the slow cooker and meatballs. This is best to do on the weekends since they only take about 4 to 5 hours to cook. If you come home during the lunch hour like I do, then by all means do it then. I’m not stopping you. :) When the meatballs are done, place 4 of them with the sauce on top of some bread and some cheese. Turn on the boiler and toast the bread until they’re brown and the cheese is melted. Don’t walk away from your boiler too, or else you may have some burnt meatball subs when you come back. Enjoy!
