meatball grinders

whenever my mom comes to visit, she always brings up a container of her famous meatballs and sauce. usually, we freeze them and save them to have pasta and sauce or meatball grinders.  i absolutely love meatball grinders [or subs or hoagies for you people who aren't from rhode island]!

my mom finally gave me her meatballs and sauce recipe, so i plan to try to duplicate them piece of piece.  for now, i will try just the meatballs but in store bought sauce for the grinders.

about 15 cups of pasta sauce
2 pounds of hamburg [preferably 80/20]
2 eggs
1 cup parmesan cheese
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
5 tablespoons pasta sauce
2 teaspoons salt
1 lb provolone cheese
6 pack of italian rolls

- put sauce on stove over medium until bubbling
- combine hamburg, eggs, parmesan cheese, 5 tablespoons sauce, and salt
- form into balls and put into sauce
- simmer in sauce for 1 hour
  when ready for meatball grinders:
- preheat oven to 350
- line cookie sheet with aluminum foil
- line grinder rolls with slices of provolone cheese
- spoon in 5-6 meatballs per grinder roll
- cover with provolone cheese
- place in oven for 6-7 minutes
