I made these sandwiches one evening for my family, and they were a huge hit with everyone, including the picky eaters. There’s plenty of sauce and cheese to complement the baked meatballs.

"Made these for dinner and the family declared it a keeper. I used ground turkey in place of the ground beef and used thinly cut cheddar cheese in place of the American (didn't have any on hand). I also used whole wheat bread crumbs in place of the saltines. I liked this recipe because it was quick to put together, even making the meatballs. We will be enjoying this one again!"

"You can use ground turkey in place of the beef. Using a broililng pan will reduce fat content. Very tasty."

"This recipe makes a large batch of meatballs which I take and freeze for extra meals. I do not add the processed American cheese slices and mayonnaise to the sandwiches. My family and I do not care for the taste. If I do not have saltines on hand, I use whole wheat bread crumbs. I also use whole wheat or whole grain sub rolls. An extremely good sandwich which I have made many, many times"
