Ingredient List
For the Meatballs:
  • 1 (20 oz) bag frozen meatballs (regular or Italian style)
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 (24 oz) jar spaghetti sauce
For the Subs:
  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 loaves Italian or baguette bread
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Place meatballs, 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning and spaghetti sauce in the slow cooker. Cook on low for 8 hours.

  • About 30 minutes before serving, combine butter, garlic powder, and 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning. Slice loaves of bread lengthwise and spread garlic butter on the inside of each loaf.

  • Put loaves back together and cut each loaf into thirds crosswise to create 6 sandwiches.

  • Place garlic bread cut side up on a baking sheet. Heat under the broiler until toasted.

  • Top toasted bread with meatballs, sauce, and a sprinkle of mozzarella cheese for a hot and melty meatball sub.
