Mushroom Brie Stuffed Turkey Meatball Sub

Meatball Sub is a favorite crow pleaser and super easy to make! Tender, juicy, cheesy homemade meatballs simmered in a flavorful tomato sauce and wrapped in a roll. 

The meatball sub is my favorite dish to make when I have to feed a crowd because it is so easy to make and you can make a ton effortlessly. And the important part, everybody loves it.

How to Make Meatball Sub

This meatball sub recipe is super easy and you don’t need any fancy cooking equipment. However, if you would like to wipe out your fancy equipment, you can cook it in a crockpot, air fryer, or a slow cooker.

Choose Your Meat of Choice For The Meatball

I personally love using organic ground turkey or ground chicken breast. I love eating white and lean meat because it is much healthier choicer than dark or red meat. However, when you are looking for a juicer meatball, look for at least 85% lean meat. You can also mix lean meat with some 85% lean meat.

For this recipe, because you will be stuffing cheese on the inside and cheese will give the meat some juice, it will not be dry. So don’t be afraid to use lean meat in this recipe!

Choose Your Meatball Seasoning

Depends on the type of meat you choose, black pepper, salt, garlic is usually a good starter. If you love spicy, you can even through in some serrano or hot sauce. Other spices you can use includes, basil, thyme, sage, and rosemary.

Choose Your Cheese To Stuff Your Meatball

Trader Joe's triple cream wild mushroom brie

My personal favorite cheese to stuff is Trader Joe’s brand triple cream wild mushroom brie. It is soft and adds a great earthy flavor to your meatball. However, you can stuff it with any type of cheese you want.

Choose Toppings For Your Meatball Sub

Tomato sauce and parmesan cheese are the classic choices but for my recipe, there will be cheese inside the meatball so I recommend that you leave out the additional cheese or maybe just a sprinkle.

Personally favorite toppings include onion, mushrooms, fresh basil… more cheese.

What is The Best Bread For Meatball Sub

 Trader Joe's organic baguette

Any long roll or baguette will work. My personal favorite is Trader Joe’s organic baguette. It is absolutely delicious. Unlike another baguette, this one is super soft and fluffy.

Instructions
  1. In a mixing bowl, crack the egg and mix it with salt, minced garlic, black pepper, and small cubed onion. Then add ground turkey and mix again.
  2. Slice the cheese into small cubes. About an inch cube.
  3. Grab a small handful of ground turkey and form a ball shape. Then stuff it with cheese into the middle.
  4. In a baking pan, drizzle some avocado oil. Enough to grease the bottom.
  5. Place the meatball in the greased pan. Once you are done with the meatball, pour marinara sauce over the meatball. Depends on personal preference, you can place additional cheese on top of the marinara sauce. You can also pour extra marinara sauce on the side of the meatball for additional dipping sauce.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes or until brown. This cooking time will depend on how big your meatball is.
  7. Once the meatballs are cooked, sliced the baguette (bake it for 5 minutes if you like it toasted) and spread the marinara sauce inside the baguette. Then place the meatball and some fresh basil on top.
