Grilled Italian Meatball Sub's

I had a hankering for something Italian.....didn't want spaghetti, no lasagna or manicotti, then the light went off!  Meatball Subs!  Meatballs subs are my daughters favorite too, so I was good to go with these hearty, filling, footlongs of steamy spicy meatball and gooey cheese goodness.  These aren't for the light eater, I was stuffed to the gills by the time I finished.  My mind said, 'yum, let's eat another' belly surrendered.  But I look forward to a reheated 2nd helping of meatball sub goodness today!  These are super duper simple to make, take roughly an hour to make unless you want to drink more beers, then it can take as long as you like.  Give them a try and you'll think twice before ordering meatball subs from the local delivery place next time!
