How to Make Cheesy Meatball Subs

  2. Place onto a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes, flip over and bake for an additional 4 minutes.
  3. In a saucepan mix together spaghetti sauce, basil, and bacon bits. Bring to a boil and reduce to heat to keep sauce warm while toasting hot dog buns. Turn broiler on and open hot dog buns face up on a baking sheet and broil until crisp and dark around edges.
  4. Put three meatballs on a hot dog bun and spoon spaghetti sauce over meatballs. ENJOY!!!
