Mushroom-Meatball Subs

Erin Chase from $5 Dinners stretches two meals from one with her recipe for mushroom meatballs that the entire family loves.

Yield – Makes 4 sandwiches

Ingredients

8 oz. white mushrooms, finely chopped
1 ½ pound ground beef
3/4 cup bread crumbs
1 egg
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning (omit if using seasoned bread crumbs)
1 teaspoon garlic salt
½ teaspoon pepper
½ cup spaghetti sauce
4 sub or bollillo rolls
4 slices cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the chopped mushrooms, ground beef, bread crumbs, egg, Italian seasoning, garlic salt and pepper. Mix well and then form into meatballs. Place the meatballs into a glass baking dish, and then top with a spoonful of spaghetti sauce on each meatball.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until meatballs cook through. Note that cooking time will vary depending on size of the meatballs. If making mini-meatballs, cook for 15-20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, split open the rolls or bread lengthwise and scoop out the bread from the bottom half, so the meatballs can rest inside the bottom piece of the roll. Break a slice of cheese in half, and then place on top of the meatball. Microwave for 30 seconds, or put in the oven for a few minutes to allow the cheese to melt.
  5. Serve Mushroom-Meatball Subs with side of favorite fresh fruit and chips.
