These Oven-Baked Meatball Sandwiches are so incredibly easy to make. Loaded with melted cheese & marinara making these perfect for your game day crowd.


1-2 pkg Carando Abruzzese Fresh Italian Meatballs

4-6 hoagie rolls

4-6 slices provolone cheese

12 ounces marinara sauce

6 cups mozzarella cheese

Parmesan cheese & parsley for garnish – opt


Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Line a large baking sheet with foil & then place the raw meatballs on it about 1″ apart.

Bake the meatballs for 15 minutes.

Remove the baking sheet, turn the meatballs over & return to the oven to bake an additional 14-17 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 185 degrees F.

While the meatballs are baking, spray your casserole dish with oil or cooking spray.

Place the buns in the prepared dish & line the inside of each bun with a slice of provolone cheese.

Once the meatballs are cooked, place several in each bun in between the cheese. (*note- do not turn off your oven after baking the meatballs)

Spoon the marinara sauce over the meatballs & then top each sandwich with a handful of mozzarella cheese.

Bake in the 375-degree F oven for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

*Opt – broil for 2-5 minutes to brown the cheese before serving.

Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese & parsley prior to serving.


To make these in the air fryer – cook the meatballs at 390 for 15 minutes. Assemble the sandwiches, then coo for another 3-5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
