Gianna’s, Shiela’s, and Savina’s Meatball Sandwiches


2 pounds ground beef
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 cup milk
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 medium onion diced
1 large jar marinara sauce
12 dinner rolls or slider rolls
2 cups grated mozzarella


Mix the meat with the breadcrumbs, milk, garlic, salt and pepper, and knead the mixture together with your hands. Roll into tablespoon sized rolls.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook for 1 minute. Add the meatballs between the onions and brown for 1 minute.

Pour in the jar of marinara and shake the skillet gently to mix. Put on a lid and simmer for 20 minutes.

When ready to serve, cut each dinner roll in half. Place a handful of grated mozzarella on the top and bottom of each roll. Spoon a meatball or two with the sauce onto the bottom bun, top with the top bun.
