Updated: Aug 4, 2020



  • 2 pounds Bryan Flannery Prime Ground Beef Blend (or ground beef of your choice)

  • ⅓ cup oat flour or 1/3 cup breadcrumbs

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 shallot, minced

  • 1 ½ tablespoons minced oregano

  • 1 tablespoon minced basil

  • 1 tablespoon minced thyme

  • 2 ½ teaspoons salt

  • 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper


  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 6 slices provolone cheese, cut in half

  • 2 cups marinara sauce

  • 2 (12”) sourdough or French baguettes, split in half, buttered and toasted

  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F.

  2. Place all ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir together until just combined.

  3. Using meat mixture, roll 4 tablespoon sized meatballs (about 2 ounces each) until all the mixture has been used.

  4. Add oil to a heavy bottom skillet and place over medium-high heat. Add meatballs to skillet (in two batches as to not overcrowd the pan) and brown on all sides, 2 to 3 minutes.

  5. Add all meatballs back into skillet and place in oven until meatballs just cook though, 6 to 8 minutes.

  6. Remove meatballs from oven and drain as much excess grease from skillet. Pour marinara sauce over meatballs and simmer for 5 minutes.

  7. To assemble: Spoon a small amount of marinara sauce into each split baguette. Fill each with meatballs and top with more sauce. Finish with slices of provolone and broil on high for 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese has melted and is bubbling. Top with more marinara if desired, cracked black pepper and freshly grated Parmesan. Serve immediately.
