Frugal Meatball Subs

Recipe Description
These are, by far, the most frugal meatballs I've ever made. You can substitute the Ragu/Prego for generic spaghetti sauce and I find the sweeter sauces work best. The meatballs can also be made in large batches and frozen without the sauce, or made with the sauce and stored in the freezer for later heating.​
Preparation Steps:
No preparation beforehand.​
Level of Difficulty:
Time Needed:
30 minutes​
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Salt and pepper
1 (32 oz.) jar Ragu or Prego
6 Italian rolls​
6 servings​
Mix ground beef, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Shape into 1 1/2 inch meatballs and fry in deep pot until brown. Drain off grease. Pour in sauce and stir once. Cover and heat slowly on low flame for 1/2 hour.

Cut off 1 end of roll and dig out inner roll carefully. Fill each roll with meatballs and sauce and stick some of inner roll on end to hold in sauce.​

Sounds delish! I'll have to give it a try. I make my meatballs in the oven. I just roll them up and place on a baking sheet til done.
