Bruschetta Meatball Subs


Bruschetta Meatball Subs

This is the third and final post as part of the Kraft Recipe Makers project. I hope you enjoyed the Chicken Fajita Pizza and the little video I made for the Barbeque Chicken Nachos! The other two recipes had a decidedly Mexican twist, so this time I decided to go a little bit more on the Italian side. Make sure you read all the way thru because there is an awesome giveaway at the end!

When the package from Kraft arrived with all the varieties of Recipe Makers, my husband immediately set a few flavors aside. He wanted what was on the box, and nothing else. Well this one I over ruled him on. Don’t get me wrong, the chicken bruschetta pasta looks wonderful, but I had an idea and I wanted to see how it worked out. Now I need to add Recipe Makers to my grocery list so I can make the original recipe for my husband.

Bruschetta Meatball Subs

Kraft Recipe Makers is a new product that has 2 complementary sauces in one box. All you have to do is add the fresh ingredients and you can create one great dish. All of the boxes come with 3 recipe ideas for you, or you can get creative and make your own. There is a total of 9 different varieties, so you should have no trouble finding a few you want to try! These bruschetta meatball subs came together in no time. I used the basil garlic simmer sauce as the flavoring for the meatballs. You could really taste the basil flavoring in each bite of the sandwich. The chunky bruschetta finishing sauce was a well-seasoned marinara type sauce that made for the perfect topping to the meatballs. I used sliced provolone cheese with my sandwiches, but Mozzarella cheese would work really well too. I think that just about any ground meat would be great here, but I used ground beef. I know ground chicken would be really good, so if you had that on hand I would give it a try!
