Cheesy Turkey Meatball Subs #TailGatePartyHop

Cheesy Turkey Meatball Subs
Move over BBQ. Cheesy Turkey Meatball Subs offer a choice for your next game day party. Chili, tacos and nachos can be fun but cheesy meatball subs let you skip the tomatoes and salsa.
These meatballs are quick and easy. Homemade cheese sauce tastes better than anything canned. Top with some caramelized onions and peppers for a unique taste.
I’m a pickle freak so I always have some on hand.
You can use chicken, if you like. Both taste great.
I suggest if you use ground beef, pork or lamb to add an egg. Ground poultry is super moist and doesn’t need the binder.

One quick pic before the recipe.
Before the cheesy goodness. Can I squeeze one more meatball in there?
