Comfort foods don’t get any better than this: Sheet Pan Sloppy Joe Meatball Subs!
Start by heating up some meatballs in marinara sauce (either homemade or store-bought). Next, divide and spoon out your mixture onto hoagie buns before topping with slices of mozzarella cheese for toasting under the broiler until melted.
Tender meatballs simmered in an irresistibly flavorful tomato sauce are served on toasted sub buns with melting provolone cheese for an irresistibly comforting meal. Even better is that this recipe uses both frozen and homemade ingredients, making preparation much simpler! Additionally, this dish makes an excellent party dish; just prepare one large batch and have everyone build their own sandwiches as an assembly line process!
Preheat the oven to 375F and line a large rimmed baking pan with aluminum foil. Combine ground beef, breadcrumbs, finely minced onion and garlic, egg, salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; mix lightly using either your hands or a spoon until all ingredients have come together. Shape 1-inch meatballs (each should weigh approximately 1/2 ounce), place in prepared pan and bake until fully cooked through (20 to 25 minutes).
To create the sauce, mix Manwich Sloppy Joe Sauce, tomato sauce, brown sugar, Worcestershire Sauce, mustard Powders (Chili Powder, Garlic Powder and Onion Powder) as well as Worcestershire. Cook on medium heat until bubbly before adding chopped green pepper slices and sauteed onion for 5 more minutes of simmering time before stirring in tomato paste/water and simmer until thickened.
Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add meatballs; cook, stirring occasionally until all sides of each meatball have become golden-brown in color (about 10 minutes). Remove meatballs from pan; set aside.
Crock pots make this dish even simpler to make and can be made ahead of time, putting all ingredients in at once to then reheat on low heat when ready to eat! They’re an especially great way to feed hungry school nights!
These meatball subs can be enjoyed right away or stored in the fridge for up to one day before enjoying. For optimal results, toast your sandwiches prior to filling.
Use any sub roll you like for these sandwiches – I like using hoagie style buns which feature a crunchy exterior while remaining soft on the inside, though any sandwich roll with some bite, such as French rolls would work just as well. Top these delectable treats off with extra gooey cheese for even more decadence!
Frozen meatballs, sloppy joe sauce and sandwich rolls come together to form a delicious dinner that everyone will love – the ideal comfort food to get back-to-school season underway!
Start by gathering together frozen meatballs, sloppy joe sauce, or tomato sauce and some kind of cheese (provolone and mozzarella are my personal preferences, but you could certainly use whatever fits into your family’s preferences). This recipe can easily be doubled and can even be served up as an appetizer when served on garlic bread!
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil onto it before placing your meatballs on it. Bake them for 20 minutes, or until brown before adding Manwich Original Sloppy Joe sauce and simmering them for another 10-15 minutes until they become tender.
Browning meatballs before adding them to the sauce is crucial, both for flavoring them as well as helping them remain together in a dish with more of a sloppy joe consistency than being too thick and dry.
Once your sauce is complete, add your meatballs and combine thoroughly so they are evenly covered in it. Serve on a sandwich bun and top it off with additional sauce or cheese as desired.
This recipe can easily be doubled for larger parties. Additionally, it works great as an appetizer to start the party off right by offering it on garlic bread for guests to create their own sloppy joe meatball subs with toppings of their choosing.

Make these meatball subs even more special by topping with shredded mozzarella cheese for extra melty goodness! Or use provolone instead – just remember to toast your rolls first so they don’t become soggy when assembling your subs!
Once you’ve toasted and melted the cheese, it’s time to put together your sandwiches. I like to begin by spreading a small amount of the Sloppy Joe Meatball Sauce onto each roll before layering one piece of sliced cheese on each sandwich and returning them back into the oven until all the cheese has become completely melty and bubbly.
Once the sandwiches are complete, they’re ready to be enjoyed! These comforting sandwiches are deliciously satisfying on cold, grey days – not to mention convenient: these meatball subs can be prepared ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator until dinner time comes around!

For these meatball subs to turn out perfectly, you will need several key ingredients – including your preferred marinara sauce and some deli-sliced sandwich bread or rolls – along with light toasting before assembling with meatballs and marinara sauce. Toasting will help prevent the bread from quickly turning soggy; without this step being completed correctly it could quickly become soggy!
I recommend starting off by toasting an Italian-style loaf or hoagie rolls before layering in your sauce, meatballs and cheese! In this particular recipe I used provolone and mozzarella as cheese options, though any kind will do.
Once your bread has been toasted, spread some garlic butter on it and sprinkle some garlic salt – this simple step will bring extra flavor! Next step should be layering some cheese onto each bun: provolone or mozzarella would work great here but for something truly gourmet add in a dash of Parmesan too!
After adding cheese, spread each bun with several spoonfuls of the sauce before topping each sandwich with 4 meatballs and more shredded cheese. Bake the sandwiches for 3-5 minutes or until the cheese has melted completely and is warm throughout.
Create an irresistibly delicious cheese- and sauce-topped meal that the entire family will savor with this recipe for Meatball Subs!
