Meatball subs are kind of my weakness.
So when my kids begged me
to make them last night,
I admit I got a little nervous.
Since I've been pretty "good" lately,
I didn't want to let those
lure me into eating way too much
like those little temptresses always do.
So I improvised,
skipped the bun,
and created a zucchini sub instead!
I have to say,
I think I actually prefer it this way.
Here's the recipe:
Homemade Turkey Meatballs
One Pound Ground Turkey
1/2 Cup Breadcrumbs
Half an Onion (Diced)
1/4 Cup Fresh Grated Parmesan
Couple shakes of Worcestershire sauce
Splash of milk
Red Pepper Flakes
Salt & Pepper
*I don't ever really measure seasoning.
So just be generous
and you'll end up with tasty meatballs.
Form your meatballs.
Place them on a baking sheet
(After lining it with foil
and spraying it down with nonstick spray.)
Bake in preheated oven at 375 degrees
for about 25 minutes.
Of course you're welcome to make your own sauce
after all, Homemade is Better.
But I took the easy way out this time
and used a jar of whatever was in the pantry.
Now at this point go ahead
toast your bun or hoagie
and serve it up old school
Skip the bun (and the carbs)
Grill up a few slices of zucchini instead.
You won't even miss the bread!
Top with fresh parmesan.
