Turkey Meatball Subs

Perfectly seasoned turkey meatballs browned and served on toasted Sub Rolls with saucy marinara and melted mozzarella.


  • 1 lb. Lean Ground Turkey
  • ¼ C. Plain Gluten-Free Crackers, finely ground
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Shallot, minced
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. each: Dried Basil, Oregano
  • 1 tsp. each: Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Sea Salt, Black Pepper
  • 24 oz. Prepared Pizza Sauce
  • 4 Canyon Bakehouse Sub Rolls
  • ¼ C. Shredded Provolone or Mozzarella
  • Fresh Chopped Parsley, for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, ground crackers, egg, and spices and incorporate.
  3. Roll the ground turkey mixture into 2-inch balls and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes, flipping the meatballs mid-way through to ensure browning on all sides. Transfer to a plate and line the baking sheet with fresh parchment paper.
  4. Heat the prepared pizza sauce in a small saucepan over medium-low until heated through.
  5. Arrange the Sub Rolls on the baking sheet, cut side up. Place 3-4 meatballs in each roll and cover with ¼ cup of pizza sauce. Top with shredded cheese and bake for another 5 minutes.
  6. Garnish with fresh parsley to serve.
