It's so easy it's almost like cheating... in fact, it is cheating. I have to admit. There is nothing fancy about these meatball sandwiches.
However, they are so yummy they'll be gone before halftime!
That's right... frozen meatballs and marinara sauce. I said "easy", right?!
Dump the marinara in the crockpot and turn it on high...
Toss in the frozen meatballs and pour more marinara over the top...
Put a lid on it and walk away. Come back in about two hours and toss the meatballs and marinara to make sure they are all covered with sauce. These will need to cook on high for another 2-3 hours (depending on your crockpot).
For the bread? Another frozen shortcut... I'm telling you, high-class baby!
But if you believe ANYTHING I tell you... believe this, your friends and family will be convinced that you kneaded the dough on these rolls yourself! So easy and so good!
I followed the instructions on the back of the bag to do a quick thaw (warm your oven to it's lowest temp, or about 170 degrees F and then turn it off). Brush melted butter on the top of each of them and let them sit in the warmed oven for about 1 - 2 hours.
Once they've thawed and risen properly... then they get baked. Follow the instructions on the back of the bag. It's that easy.

With all the excitement of the Superbowl (and the endless amounts of food on the table... and the counter... and the tv trays... and the... ) I forgot to take a picture of the final product.
But I'm sure you can imagine what meatball sandwiches look like...
Cut the golden roll in half, shove in as many meatballs as possible (ladling some marinara sauce over the top) and add a slice of provolone or mozzarella. Enjoy...
enjoy your time in the kitchen...
