This is an easy and fun way to serve Meatball Subs.... It is not as messy either! All the flavors and joy of a good Meatball Sub, but serving in a easier to make and eat way... Even the littlest children love this!

I developed this recipe to serve for a sporting event... had everything ready and let the adults help the children and themselves! It was a big hit! Not one child said, "Oops! My meatball fell out!"
