These little bit sized mini subs of tastiness, are keepers for our family! I would have given these 5 STARS if I hadn't tweaked it to make it healthy. First I used 97% lean ground turkey instead of ground beef to lower the fat and calories. I left out the green onion and decided to sauté the onion before adding it to the meatball mixture to add a little more moisture. I was able to get 15 nice sized mini meatballs. I jar my own marinara which has all fresh ingredients so I chose to use that for the sauce, I used whole wheat rolls for the subs, and I also used low moisture, low fat mozzarella.

My husband loved this recipe! I made several small meatballs (instead of large ones) and substituted bread crumbs for the crackers. This was such an easy recipe and I'd definitely make it again!

These turned out great! I followed the recipe except baked (first bake, not the cheese melting bake) them for an additional 8 minutes b/c I forgot to set the timer!! But they were just fine. I served two on whole wheat brat buns and it was perfect. My husband, picky eater, told me to make these again soon! Yay!! Thanks for a great recipe!
