Meatball Po'Boy

Saw a Subway commercial and it triggered me into making my own meatball sub. Also, a good time for me to test Uglyade in the weird spots of food. The meatballs are a little different than what my Grandmother made but pretty good and a nice twist using 50 pork 50 beef.

Meatball Parts

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 cup parmigiano cheese (='s 1/2 bag shredded)
  • 3 tsp garlic (='s 3 smashed or chopped up.)
  • 1 ½ cup bread crumbs
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup basil (fresh leaves chopped up)

Miscellaneous Parts

  • 18 oz loaf of French bread (='s 1 loaf)
  • 12 oz mozzarella (sliced )
  • 4 oz olive salad
  • 1 cup red bell pepper
  • 4 oz avocado
  • 12 oz bag of Funyuns


Make Meatballs

  • Start oven and get’r up to 350
  • Put all the meatball parts in a bowl and mix with hands to get ingredients throughout.
  • You can cook these in a Pyrex, but I used a grate on top of a aluminum cookie sheet.
  • Make the meatballs by rolling in hand like play dough. As big or as little as you like. Above image they are about 2 ½ inches (a little too big).
  • Set as many as you can on grate and place in oven for 30 minutes. Check them to see if they need more time. They will be dark brown and you can always pull one and cut it open. A good rule of thumb is if you see clear juices oozing out they are ready.
  • If you're using the red bell pepper roast it with the meatballs in open or bake in tin foil.

Build The Sub

  • Cut French bread to size then down middle without cutting through.
  • Place meatballs in sub and mozzarella slices over that.
  • On cookie sheet place your sub/s and put in oven under broiler until cheese melts. Maybe 5 minutes.
  • Slice up avocado.
  • Plate your sub and drizzle Uglyade or any sauce you like over it.
  • Add olive salad, avocado slices, and roasted red bell peppers.
  • Bring the whole bag of Funyuns or plate them too.
  • Get after it!


I didn’t use marinara or sauce on this I used our Uglyade. Something comparable would be Italian dressing. .Anything you like would work on this. I was testing...

Hay yall! Don’t be afraid to adjust or substitute ingredients to your taste. These recipes didn’t come from a written measured recipe. They are made, noted, measured on the fly, then pumped up here when time permits and most importantly only if they tasted good.

If you don’t have any Texas Butter I guess we’ll overlook it if you use what’s in your pantry. Be sure to ask how something turned out or you have questions. Expect grammar errors, these are not checked much other than what my browser flags. Well, in general I can’t spell worth a crap. Thanks – Shawn
