  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
  • 2/3 cup finely grated Parmesan
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 pounds lean ground turkey
  • 1 24-oz. jar marinara sauce
  • 8 crusty sub-style rolls
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 12 ounces sliced provolone


  1. Whisk eggs with 3 Tbsp. water. Stir in bread crumbs; let stand 5 minutes. Add Parmesan, parsley, garlic and turkey; mix gently until well combined. Moisten hands and roll mixture into 24 1 1/2-inch balls. Transfer to a dish large enough to accommodate all meatballs. Refrigerate meatballs for 30 minutes.
  2. Pour marinara into a wide, deep pot with a lid and warm over medium-high heat. Add meatballs (sauce will not completely cover meatballs), cover and cook 10 minutes. Uncover and turn meatballs. Cover; cook 10 minutes longer, until meatballs are no longer pink inside (cut one to test).
  3. Preheat broiler to high. Cut rolls lengthwise and drizzle inside of each with 1 tsp. olive oil. Divide cheese among rolls and place on baking sheet. Broil until cheese is melted and bread is lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Place three meatballs on each roll and spoon sauce over. Serve immediately.
