Meatball Stuffed Sandwiches



  • 1 lb. fresh ground sausage
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup crushed bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped bell pepper
  • 1 package Hawaiian rolls
  • 1 and 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1 jar marinara sauce


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • In a large bowl, mix fresh sausage, egg, bread crumbs, onion and bell pepper, mixing well until combined. Form into small sized meat balls, approximately 1 1/2" in diameter.
  • Place the formed meatballs in a skillet on med/high heat and brown until cooked through, approximately 8-12 minutes.
  • While meatballs are cooking, cut holes in the center of the Hawaiian rolls to place the meatballs in. Scoop out the centers, making sure to not pierce the bottom of the rolls.
  • Take 1/2 cup of mozzarella and sprinkle in the bottom of the holes.
  • Once the meatballs are cooked through, place one in each hole (you may have some left over and that's fine! They make a great meatball sandwich or appetizer).
  • Pour the marinara sauce over the meatball sandwiches and top with the remaining cup of mozzarella cheese.
  • Place in the oven and cook for an additional 16-18 minutes. Remove and enjoy!
