Served on crusty grilled baguette, melted fresh mozzarella, savory homemade meatballs and sauce are perfectly matched and make the most enjoyable dinner in every time of the year. They are an easy weeknight dinner idea, which everyone likes.
Inspiration we actually got by watching the Netflix series “The Chef Show” where they prepared Neapolitan pizza, wood oven baked bread and homemade meatballs with marinara sauce. I literally craved for these savory meatballs while watching it. And BeastFeast version is now slightly twisted, as we call them naked Italian meatball sub sandwich, served on a crusty fluffy baguette.
These meatball subs are exactly how we like them to eat. Meat with cheese and sauce. 🙂 Can it get better? 🙂
