To say that Dan and I are obsessed with meatballs is an understatement. Any time we have no idea what to make, meatballs are one of the first things we suggest. While meatballs are our usual suspects, we always try to make them unique. Stuffing them with cheese this time was one way of definitely making them deliciously unique.
This recipe is a part of our weekly football food posts. Each week, we choose two teams to create recipes for and pick a winning dish. These recipes represent the team in some way, whether it is for the city, the state or for the team itself. We love researching what is popular in a certain region and getting creative about how to highlight the team. This week, we chose the Buffalo Bills and the New York Jets. With two New York teams, we felt a little in over our heads. Given that neither of us have visited the area, we were worried about coming up with two dishes in one week to represent one distinct place. Once we narrowed down some ideas and were set on bringing meatballs into the equation, great recipes started flowing.
Meatballs and New York go together somehow for us, and when the idea came at us, we hungrily went with it. Great Italian food seems to be produced in that area, so naturally a cheese stuffed meatball was the way to go for this recipe. Placing the cheese stuffed meatballs into a sourdough bun, then made this dish a real game changer.
Our other game day food to represent the Buffalo Bills was our buffalo macaroni bites. When we had the two go head to head, we were able to chose a winner. While both were delicious and brimming with flavor and cheese, we chose the buffalo macaroni bites. There was something so incredible about every bit of those tasty bites, that we had to go with that inventive and fun idea. Fingers crossed that the Bills win tonight and give us another win for our football food predictions!
These cheese stuffed meatball subs are the ultimate game day food. Bursting with cheese and flavor, these subs will have your guests begging for more! We hope you try them and love how fun and tasty they truly are.
