This is the ultimate comfort meal. Seriously. Eat this when you have had an absolutely miserable day and it is cold and wretched outside. No regrets.
You will need:
- 1 pound ground beef, 1 pound italian sausage (mild)
- 2 cloves minced garlic
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup bread crumbs
- 1 tsp oregano
- 1 can crushed tomatoes
- Slices of provolone cheese
- Parmesan cheese
- 6 hoagies buns
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic
- Salt and pepper to taste
Step one: preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wrap 2 cloves of garlic in aluminum foil and roast for 15 minutes.
Step two: mix beef, sausage (squeezed out of its casing), minced garlic, breadcrumbs, oregano and egg and form into meatballs.
Step three: cook meatballs in a large nonstick pan at medium heat – be sure to not overcook. Add tomatoes, salt and pepper. Simmer for an additional ten minutes. Top with fresh grated Parmesan.
Step four: while meatballs are simmering, split hoagies and brush the insides with olive oil and the roasted garlic. Heat in the oven for about 7-8 minutes until desired texture.
Step five: place three meatballs in the hoagie and top with provolone. Put subs back in the oven to melt the cheese for an additional five minutes. Enjoy!
