  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, bread crumbs, onion, salt and pepper, garlic powder, and half of the mozzarella cheese. Form the mixture into a log, and place it into an 8x8 inch baking dish.
  3. Bake for 50 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the center is no longer pink. Let stand for 5 minutes, then slice into 1/2 inch slices. Place a few slices onto each hoagie roll, cover with marinara sauce, and sprinkle remaining mozzarella cheese over.
  4. Wrap each sandwich with aluminum foil, and return to the oven for 15 minutes, until bread is lightly toasted and cheese is melted. Let stand 15 minutes before eating. Each sandwich serves 2.

Delicious sub!!! I docctored it up to make it 5 stars: 1. Omit the salt. 2. Cut the pepper down to 1 teaspoon. 3. Mix 1 lb. ground beef with 1/2 lb. ground pork. 4. Add 1 egg.

I just thought this was Ok. The meatballs were missing some seasoning and came out a little too much like a hamburger for my tast. I do like the idea of baking in a log shape to help keep the ...

I rolled them into balls for meatball subs. YUMMY!!!! Next time I will bake them in the sauce instead of adding the sauce later. Mushrooms and black olives would be good on them.
