Turkey Meatball Subs

Turkey Meatball Subs

These turkey meatballs are delicious! I love a good meatball sub, don’t you? I made the sub buns too. When you make turkey meatballs you have to be careful you don’t overcook them or they can become dry rather quickly. Dry meatballs are not a good thing! These meatballs are really moist when they go in the oven and they almost feel like they are to wet but it’s okay, when they come out of the oven they will be perfectly baked and moist.

Be sure to chop you vegetables up very small so they will get tender. I suppose you could saut̩ them a bit but they are just fine, remember tiny dice. Depending on the size of your meatballs they should bake in 12 Р15 minutes.

I decided to make some whole wheat buns to make my subs with. The meatballs can be made ahead of time or even frozen. Just add to the cooking time when you add the sauce.

If you don’t have time to make the buns just get some at the supermarket. I love making breads of all kinds so that’s why I made them.
