Ingredients
  • 1½ lb. ground beef
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • ¾ cup Italian bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 large egg
  • Olive oil
  • 4 demi baguettes, toasted, for serving
  • 4 oz. mozzarella, sliced
  • Marinara
  • 1 (28 oz.) can tomato sauce
  • ½ tsp. basil
  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • Pinch of sugar, optional
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 450 F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, shallot, garlic. parsley, bread crumbs, Parmesan and egg. Using a wooden spoon or clean hands, stir until well combined. Roll the mixture into 1¼-to-1½-inch meatballs, forming about 18-20 meatballs.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the meatballs, in batches, and cook until all sides are browned, about 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the tomato sauce, basil, garlic powder, red pepper flakes and sugar, if using.
  5. Reduce heat to low and add the tomato sauce and meatballs to the skillet, simmering until the sauce has thickened, about 10-15 minutes.
  6. To assemble the sandwich, place 3-4 meatballs and a spoonful of marinara into each baguette. Top with sliced mozzarella and place into oven and bake until the cheese has melted, about 5 minutes.
