Here is a recipe from my old kitchen:
Cook some diced green pepper, yellow onion, and garlic in olive oil.
Add a can of diced tomatoes. Season the sauce with salt, pepper, oregano, parsley, and dried onion flakes. I let this mixture simmer for a good 30 minutes until it was thick and delicious.
Use 1lb ground chuck, 1/2 diced green pepper, 1/2 diced yellow onion, 1 tspn garlic salt, a splash of worchestershire sauce, a tablespoon of jar sauce, handful of italian breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, and oregano. Mr. Bear mixed it all up while I tended to the sauce. Then I formed it into balls and cooked them for 20 minutes in 400degreeF oven.
I flipped them over and cooked the meataballas for 5 more minutes so they were extra crispy.
Hollowed out one end of a loaf Italian bread, sliced in half, added some of my pepper tomato concoction, meatballs, and white american cheese. Then I baked this baby on my pan of love until the cheese was ooey gooey.
After adding a little more sauce, I sliced the sandwich in two and let Mr. Bear go to town.
Mr. Bear said it was the BEST meatball sandwich he has ever had! Normally I make my meatballs with ground pork, one egg, and a few other spices, but this time I didn't have those ingredients. They were moist and oh so delicious (I may have sampled one or two despite my tummy's hate for red meat!)
