Serve the meatballs on split hoagie rolls along with your favorite cheese.
PRO tip: Place the cheese down first, so your buns don't get soggy.
Sliders: In this recipe, we suggest putting the meatballs on hoagie buns or hoagie rolls, instead use small slider buns and use only one meatball per bun. Top it with additional sauce and sliced provolone or shredded mozzarella cheese.
Pizza Subs: Add a pepperoni on top of each meatball for a pizza-flavored sub. Also, top with red onion and olives.
Appetizer: Leaving the meatballs as-is will give you a good appetizer choice. Consider serving with a side of toothpicks and small squares of cheese.
Casserole: With the meatballs already made, you could easily use them for a cheesy casserole. Cook them in the crockpot according to the directions below and top them with cheese. Serve with pasta and a side of garlic bread or garlic sticks.
