Serves: 6
  • 25-30 meatballs, frozen or cooked
  • 1 (16 oz.) can tomato sauce
  • ½ tsp granulated onion
  • ½ tsp Italian seasoning
  • ½ tsp dried basil
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 Tbs brown sugar
  • ½ cup mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese
  1. Take a large french bread loaf, and slice it in half lengthwise.
  2. If you are preparing the meatballs at home, fire up that crock pot and throw in the meatballs and tomato sauce, onion, italian seasoning, basil, garlic and brown sugar on low for 4 hours. If you are cooking at the campsite, use a skillet to heat up the meatballs and sauce mixture- it will take about 15-20 minutes.
  3. Once completed arrange the meatballs along the bottom half of the sub. I like to cut them in half, it just makes assembling the sandwich easier. Cover the meatballs with sauce and mozzarell and Parmesan cheese. Put the top half of the loaf on and wrap it in tin foil.
  4. Use the campfire coals to cook the meatball sub. Place the packet in the fire and let cook for about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and it is nice and toasty. Then, slice in to about 6 sandwiches and serve.
