Need Help Finding an Older WW Recipe
June 10, 2010 at 10:43 AM

Okay, ladies, I could really use some help finding this. It was in an older WW cookbook that I no longer have (from 2003, 2004??? Maybe older? lol) and it is called Italian Meatball Sandwich. If anyone has it, I would be eternally grateful if you would share it. It was my favorite and I haven't had it in years! Thanks so much! :)

    Did you check the WW website? I know it seems silly - but I have found a bunch of the older recipes on there. Good luck - and if you find it - I;d love to have it - sounds yummy!!!

    Here's a "Meatball Sub" with Italian spices :)

    PointsPlusTM Value:    9
    Servings:  8
    Preparation Time:  12 min
    Cooking Time:  22 min
    Level of Difficulty:  Easy
    Lean ground turkey and Parmigiano-Reggiano make for slimmed-down subs with big flavor.



      1 pound(s) uncooked ground turkey breast   
      1/2 cup(s) seasoned bread crumbs, Italian-flavor   
      1/4 cup(s) grated Parmesan cheese, such as Parmigiano-Reggiano   
      1 large egg(s)   
      1 1/2 tsp italian seasoning   
      2 tsp kosher salt   
      24 oz canned tomato sauce   
      20 oz Italian bread, about two 10-inch loaves   
      1/2 cup(s) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheeses   


    • Preheat oven to 350°F. Place oven racks in top 1/3 of oven. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or foil that's been coated with cooking spray.

    • In a large bowl, combine turkey, bread crumbs, cheese, egg, Italian seasoning and salt. Using a tablespoon to scoop out turkey mixture, gently shape a tablespoon of mixture into a small meatball and place on a prepared baking sheet; repeat with remaining ingredients to make 32 meatballs. Bake, shaking pans every 5 minutes to promote even browning, about 10 to 15 minutes.

    • While meatballs are cooking, slice each loaf of bread into four equal pieces.

    • When meatballs are done, remove from baking sheets. Place bread on same baking sheets; top each piece with 4 meatballs. Spoon about 3 tablespoons sauce over meatballs in each sandwich; top each with 1 tablespoon cheese. Bake until cheese is melted and sandwiches are heated through, about 5 to 7 minutes. Yields 1 sandwich per serving.


    • Scoop out some bread to create better space for the meatballs so they do not fall out of the sandwich when you bite it.

      Top with fresh basil if desired.
