Oh, my, yum. That's all I can say.
I saw this recipe on The Pioneer Woman's website the other day and knew I needed to make it. As soon as possible.
My parents were over for dinner the other night which turned out to be the perfect time.
Besides the rolls, I had everything I needed to make this in my freezer and pantry:
Bread Crumbs - I toss my old bread in the food processor, make it crumbly, and then put it in a zip lock bag. This way, I always have bread crumbs on hand and I waste less bread (who eats those heals?!).
Marinara Sauce - I don't keep that on hand but I had 2/3rd's a jar of Prego Meat Sauce in the fridge so I used the rest of that and added 1 can of diced tomatoes which worked out perfect.
Provolone Cheese (I was out so I used Mozzarella, Swiss would have been good too.)
Dinner Rolls (we used wheat because I don't like white bread. At all. Really.)
This is a Pioneer Woman recipe so you have to link here for the details! Trust me, it's worth it.
She calls this a 16 minute meal, but this is what you will have at 16 minutes:
So, it's really 16 minute prep.
20 minutes later, you will have these.
I ended up with 13 meatballs. I was able to make 6 sandwiches. One was enough per person.
Heidi, the non-carb eater, removed her bun and cheese. Next time, I will just serve her the meatballs.
The adults all really liked the sandwiches.
I served them with Corn On The Cob and Mashed Potatoes.
