1 lb ground pork

2 lb ground beef

2 eggs

2 tbsp milk

6 garlic cloves (chopped)

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp dried oregano

1/2 tsp dry basil

1/2 tsp dried fennel

1/2 yellow onion (chopped)

1/2 cup fresh Italian parsley (chopped)

1/2 cup season Italian breadcrumbs

1/2 cup parmesan cheese (grated)

Italian sub buns

3 cups tomato sauce

7-10 pieces provolone (sliced)

basil (optional)


Begin by preheating your oven to 400°.

Combine all meatball ingredients in a large bowl and mix really well.

Once combined, roll a small meatball in your hand and fry it on the stove until cooked. Give your meatball a taste to see if it need any additional seasoning before baking them in the oven.

To a large baking pan add tinfoil and lightly spray with cooking oil.

Roll into 1.5 inch meatballs, and add to your baking pan.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until they reach an internal temperature of 160°. Remove from oven.

Add 3-4 meatballs to your sub, top with tomato sauce, then provolone and bake in a 350° oven for anywhere between 5 to 7 minutes, ensuring the bread is crispy and the cheese is melted. *Bake long enough so the bread holds its shape.

Top with fresh basil and enjoy right away!
