Turkey Meatball Reuben Subs

It’s not often that I eat sandwiches unless they are paninis but every once is a while, I want to dig into a hearty sandwich like the next guy.  These Turkey Meatball Reuben Subs are right up my alley.  Ground turkey is flavored with spices, and topped with swiss cheese and a quick coleslaw.  Paprika, coriander, and garlic gives ground turkey some flavor while the cayenne and black peppers give it some heat.  I used broccoli slaw instead of regular cabbage slaw and liked the additional crunch factor it provided.  These can easily be made and wrapped up to go so I might just make another one of these for my next tailgate!

The ingredients:

Mix ground turkey with spices, garlic, sugar, and salt.

Shape into 16 meatballs and broil until fully cooked (the recipe says 8 minutes but my needed an extra couple of minutes).

While the meatballs broil, mix together the slaw, paprika, and Thousand Island dressing.

When meatballs are done, place 4 meatballs in the roll with a slice of cheese.  Broil until golden brown (about 1 minute), then top with slaw.
