Camping season is here! This camping Meatball Sub Recipe is so easy to throw together and is absolutely delicious! If your family loves camping this is a great meal to take along that will make all of your campground neighbors jealous! Last week I shared how to make my 5 layer dutch oven breakfast camping recipe and in this blog post, I will be showing you how to prepare this Meatball Sub Recipe over a campfire…yes, I said campfire! Get your roasting sticks ready…it’s going to be so tasty!!
Meatball Sub Recipe
For this recipe we will be using my easy Freezer Meatball Recipe! Hopefully you’ve tried this recipe and have some stocked up in your freezer! It’s so easy to thaw them overnight in the fridge and you’ve got dinner almost ready…I love that!!
Start off by placing the pre-cooked meatballs on a roasting stick. Another option is you could make my recipe for homemade meatballs at the campground and shape the uncooked meat into balls and cook them right up over the fire too! But I love quick and easy camping recipes, so we do all the prep work before we leave. We re-heated 4 at a time and that was perfect for the size for 1 sub.
Roast the meatballs until they start to sizzle and look nice and browned. You will have to resist eating them just like this…they smell so good. Or maybe make a few extra to snack on!
Next, add about a tablespoon of your favorite marinara sauce to each meatball and continue to cook over the fire until heated through.
Then, wrap your favorite hoagie bun in aluminum foil…I’m using my Homemade Bread Buns Recipe. I love making my own bread buns…they are totally worth it!
Place the wrapped up bun in the bottom of the fire for about 5 minutes or until warmed up.
Now it’s time to assemble your meatball sub! You can add a little extra sauce and some provolone cheese…all the stuff that makes it super yummy! And your done! Now THAT’S a good camping meal!
I hope you enjoy this Meatball Sub Recipe as much as I did! Enjoy!
