Parmesan Sandwich

Great Sandwich

These delicious Mini-Meatball Parmesan Sandwichs are great for games and parties. Served on sweet Hawaiian rolls, these sandwiches will melt in your mouth.

The Mini-Meatballs are top with rich gravy and melted mozzarella cheese. This recipe should make around twenty sandwiches

You can use jar gravy for this recipe but I prefer homemade.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan
  • 1/4 cup Italian flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/4 canola oil, for frying
  • 1 (24-ounce) jar marinara sauce (or 3 cups of your favorite homemade sauce)
  • Hawaiian sweet rolls
  • 20 slices fresh mozzarella


  • Mix together by hand the beef, pork, breadcrumbs, eggs, cheese, parsley, salt and pepper.
  • Roll the meat mixture into small balls around an inch and a half.
  • Fry the meatballs in the oil until browned on all sides
  • Heat up the gravy and bring to a simmer.
  • Add the fried meatballs and simmer for around 30 minutes.
  • Cut the Hawaiian rolls in half and toast in a 300 degree oven for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Place the meatballs on the bottom half.
  • Top with a slice of mozzarella cheese.
  • Broil until cheese has melted.
  • Top with other bun and serve with the extra gravy.
  • You can secure the meatballs with little skewers if you prefer.
