Sausage Meatball Subs

Everyone loves a hearty meatball sub, so try out this sandwich recipe using sausage meat to make the meatballs! An Italian classic with a slight flavor twist!


1 lb (500g) Maple Leaf Natural Ground Pork Sausage Meat

1/2 cup (125 mL) freshly grated Parmesan cheese

1 egg, beaten

1/3 cup (80 mL) Italian bread crumbs

1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil

2 cups (500 mL) ready prepared pasta sauce

2 cups (500 mL) grated Mozzarella cheese

4 sausage buns, lightly toasted


Mix together sausage meat, Parmesan cheese, egg and bread crumbs in a large bowl. Form mixture into 12 meatballs, about the size of a golf ball.

Heat olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add meatballs and cook for 2-3 minutes per side or until golden brown on all sides and the internal temperature has reached 160°F (71°C). Pour pasta sauce into the pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 3-5 minutes.

Preheat broiler to high.

Split buns open and place on a baking sheet.
Arrange 3 meatballs on the bottom half of each toasted bun. Top with a generous spoonful of pasta sauce and ½ cup grated Mozzarella. Broil under preheated broiler until cheese is melted and bubbly. Top with remaining buns and serve immediately.
