You'll Love This Twist On Meatball Subs

Print Recipe

Love meatball subs? Can't get enough of spaghetti and meatballs? You'll love this two-bite twist that has the best of both worlds - a cheesy meatball center and doughy garlic bread outside, perfect enough to dip in some marinara sauce.

These are so effortless to put together - just flatten out some biscuit dough, stuff with a meatball, cheese and sauce, then seal up the edges and brush with garlic butter. Once golden-brown in the oven and skewered, these make for an amazing appetizer or even the main event at your next party!
