“This is an quick version for when you don't want to use the oven. Especially good if you are only making one!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 club size Italian rolls (about 5 inches long) or 1 French roll (about 5 inches long)
  • 3 meatballs (leftover or frozen)
  • 12 cup pizza sauce (or leftover Spaghetti sauce)
  • 14 cup mozzarella cheese (you can also use sliced Provolone) or 14 cup pizza cheese (you can also use sliced Provolone)


  1. Slice roll as if making a sandwich but slice all the way through.
  2. Place each half of the roll in the toaster.
  3. While roll is toasting, heat up meatballs in sauce in the microwave.
  4. When roll is toasted to your liking, place both halves on a micro safe plate, cut side up.
  5. Spoon meatballs (I cut them in half) and sauce equally over each side and sprinkle with cheese.
  6. Heat in microwave for about 10 seconds or until cheese starts to melt.
  7. As neatly as possible put the sandwich together and press down slightly.
  8. Allow to cool for a couple minutes and enjoy.
