Sometimes, you just want a meatball sandwich. It’s one of those foods that sticks to your ribs. Here’s how I made an easy meatball sandwich with fiber.
Easy Meatball Sandwich Servings, Preparation Time, and Ingredients
- Preparation Time: 30 minutes
- Servings: 4
- 12 frozen meatballs (beef, turkey, or vegetarian)
- 3 slices of reduced-fat Provolone cheese
- 1 23.75-ounce jar of marinara sauce
- 4 sprouted wheat hot dog buns
- 1/4 red onion
- 24-32 baby spinach leaves
- 2 small tomatoes
Easy Meatball Sandwich Instructions
- Preheat the oven based on meatball package instructions (about 350 degrees Fahrenheit).
- Empty the jar of marinara sauce into a pot. Heat on medium-low for a few minutes or until bubbling, then simmer and cover.
- Place the meatballs on a baking sheet and bake in the oven based on package instructions (about 20 minutes).
- Meanwhile, wash and dry the tomatoes, onion, and spinach. Halve and slice the tomatoes, and slice the onion.
- Carefully transfer the cooked meatballs to the sauce, stir together, and cover. Wash and dry the baking sheet. Slice the hot dog buns open, and cut the slices of cheese into quarters.
- Place the open buns on the baking sheet and top each with 3 meatballs. Top each meatball with a piece of cheese. Bake in the oven for a few minutes or until the cheese has melted.
- Remove the sandwiches from the oven and turn off the stovetop and oven heat. Plate the sandwiches and garnish with 6 tomato slices, 6 to 8 baby spinach leaves, and a sprinkle of onion slices.
