Let me state this for the record. If you are going to have a meatball sandwich, then it should be on garlic bread. Where I live, it’s tough to find quality fresh bread. I’ve resorted to the frozen French baguette for sandwiches like cheesesteaks or submarine sandwiches, but for a meatball sub, it just doesn’t work. You need a sub roll that is wider to stuff the meatballs in properly. Most supermarkets sell those but they tend to be slightly less fresh. I have found the trick is to turn that sub into garlic bread by toasting it with butter and garlic powder. We reheated homemade meatballs for this meal check out our recipe on how to make meatballs from scratch.

What cheese goes on a meatball sub?
Turn the bread into garlic bread and melt mozzarella cheese on top and then sprinkle parmesan cheese over the meatballs. If you decide to use provolone cheese be sure it’s good sweeter cheese and not a sharp sour provolone cheese that tastes like swiss cheese.
