These turkey meatball subs are ready in under twenty minutes and so flavorful and delicious!

There’s a place near my house called Moochie’s that has the absolute best subs! My husband and I have lunch there frequently, and we love to share either a chicken parmesan sub or a chicken philly sub. They’re most famous for their meatball subs, though, and a few weeks ago I tried one for the first time. It was totally heavenly! I’ve been craving another meatball sub ever since, so I decided it was high time I made one at home. Using my homemade marinara sauce and garlic parmesan turkey meatballs, they were a snap to make and delicious too! (I think they would be delicious with store-bought meatballs and marinara sauce, too.) One of the things that makes these easy turkey meatball subs extra special is that the buns are made into garlic bread before the sandwiches are baked, so they’re full of extra flavor and nice and crisp. I love super easy meals that are ready in just a few minutes!

4 sub rolls, sliced lengthwise

    3 tablespoons butter, softened

      1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

        1/4 teaspoon parsley

          16 meatballs

          • 1 1/4 pounds ground turkey
          • 1 egg
          • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
          • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
          • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
          • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
          • 1 teaspoon salt
          • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

          1 cup marinara sauce

          • 1 tablespoon butter
          • 1 tablespoon olive oil
          • 3 teaspoons minced garlic
          • 3/4 cup chicken broth
          • 3 14.5 ounce cans crushed tomatoes
          • 1 tablespoon parsley
          • 1 tablespoon sugar
          • 1 teaspoon salt
          • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

          8 slices provolone cheese


            For the meatballs:

            • Preheat the oven to 375. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment. Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix with your hands until well blended. Shape into 1 1/4 inch balls (I like to use a cookie scoop for evenly sized meatballs). Place on prepared baking sheet. Bake 25-30 minutes, or until cooked through.

            For the marinara sauce:

            • Heat the butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook 1-2 minutes, or until fragrant. Add the chicken broth and let the garlic simmer for a few minutes. Add the crushed tomatoes, parsley, sugar, salt, and pepper, and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low. Simmer 25-30 minutes, or until slightly thickened.

            For the subs:

            • Preheat the oven to 350. Mix the butter, garlic powder, and parsley, and spread the mixture on both sides of the sub rolls. Place the rolls in the preheated oven and bake 10-15 minutes, or until lightly golden around the edges. Remove from the oven and top each roll with four meatballs. Spread 1/4 cup of marinara sauce over the top of the meatballs and top with two slices of provolone. Return to the oven and bake until the subs are heated through and the cheese is melted. Enjoy!
