Mini Meatball and Mozzarella Sandwiches #SundaySupper

Mini meatball and mozzarella sandwiches are prefect for game day or any day eats.

This week’s #SundaySupper theme is Super Eats for Game Day and is hosted by Hezzi D’s Books and Cooks. Let me tell you guys that I am looking forward to getting some ideas for next football season because one of my favorite parts of football season is the food.

These mini meatball and mozzarella sandwiches are made with ground beef and simmered in a homemade sauce and topped with shredded mozzarella before being placed on dinner rolls. They beat any sub shop meatball sandwich I’ve ever eaten.

In addition to being perfect for game day these would be a fabulous lunch or dinner served with chips and fruit.

Funny story about why I made these. My niece loves to watch cooking shows with me and one day we were watching The Pioneer Woman and she made this and my niece told me the next time she visited she wanted the sandwiches. So I put my own twist to her recipe.
