Alfredo Beef Sandwiches
Yield: 6 sandwiches Prep 20 mins Bake 350°F 21 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 6 hoagie buns
  • 1 16 ounce jar Alfredo or marinara pasta sauce
  • 6 slices provolone cheese (about 6 ounces)

Make It

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl combine egg, bread crumbs, garlic salt, and pepper. Add ground beef; mix well. Shape mixture into twenty-four 1 1/4-inch meatballs. Arrange in a 913-inch baking pan. Bake, uncovered, for 15 minutes.

2. Split hoagie buns nearly all the way through but leave a long side attached. Spread 2 tablespoons of the Alfredo sauce over the bottom of each bun. Fill buns with meatballs and cheese.

3. Place sandwiches on a large baking sheet. Bake, uncovered, for 6 to 8 minutes or until buns are toasted and cheese is melted. Meanwhile, heat the remaining Alfredo sauce and serve with sandwiches for dipping.
