BBQ Meatball Subs

August 17, 2011

I've been seeing a few different versions of this recipe around blogland and I thought I'd try it out. To save time, I decided to use frozen meatballs even though I'm kind of a meatball snob! Growing up, we NEVER had frozen store-bought meatballs. My mom and grandmother always made them from scratch and I do have to say, frozen meatballs do not taste the same to me. This sauce is so good that it definitely makes up for the meatballs, you have to try it!

BBQ Meatball Subs
1 box frozen meatballs
1 and 1/4 cup ketchup
3/4 cup BBQ sauce
3 tablespoons brown sugar
garlic powder to taste

In a deep skillet, combine ketchup, BBQ sauce, brown sugar, and garlic powder. Cook meatballs according to package. Once hot, add meatballs to sauce in skillet turning to coat meatballs well.

Cover skillet and simmer for 15 minutes or until sauce thickens a bit. Serve immediately. **I served these with sweet potato fries and they were awesome when dipped in some extra sauce!

  1. How delicious. I tried a meatball sub at an Italian restaurant a while back and these just remind me of those delicious yummyness! Gotta make some soon.
