These are really good meatballs. I loved these as well as the kids.

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 20 mins
  • Yields: 6 Servings


6 (2-ounce) whole wheat submarine loaves

1 pound ground round

1/4 cup finely chopped onion

3 tablespoons Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs

2 tablespoons water

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 large egg white, lightly beaten

1 1/2 cups low-fat, reduced-sodium pasta sauce

3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


1Preheat oven to 400°.

2Cut an oval piece out of top of each loaf. Reserve oval pieces for another use.

3Combine meat and next 5 ingredients. Shape into 36 (1-inch) balls. Cook meatballs in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes or until browned on all sides. Remove from heat, and pat dry.

4Return meatballs to pan; add pasta sauce. Cook over medium-low heat 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

5Place loaves on a baking sheet; top each with 6 meatballs. Spoon sauce evenly over meatballs. Sprinkle evenly with cheese. Bake at 400° for 5 minutes or until cheese melts.
