Meatball Sandwich...Why not?!

Sometimes you just want a meatball sandwich. This recipe is simple, make the meatballs, throw them in the crockpot for a few.....then it's time to eat.

This picture does not do this sandwich justice. It's delicious. It cooks in the marinara sauce the whole time, giving it powerful flavor.

Meatball Sandwich

1 lb. hamburger (I used 93%)
3 tbsp. chopped parsley
1 tbsp. onion powder
1tbsp. garlic powder
1 c. seasoned bread crumbs
1 egg (beaten)
1 tsp. salt
1tsp. pepper
1 jar of your favorite marinara sauce (I used Trader Joes brand)

Pour the jar of marinara into a crock pot and put on high. Mix all of the rest of the ingredients together and form into balls. Once the marinara starts to heat and bubble up, place the balls into the marinara. Some meatballs will be on top and the marinara will not touch them but that is ok. It will cook down and you will be stirring. Place the lid on and let the crock pot do its thing for 2-3 hours. Take the lid off and stir, being careful not to break up the meatballs. Let cook for another 2 more hours with the lid on.
Serve on your favorite bread, spooning the delicious marinara on top and a sprinkle of grated parmesan cheese.
