Meatball stuffed sandwiches

Meatball Stuffed Sandwiches from here

makes 4 large stuffed sandwiches

(*note: You can make these as easy or complicated as you would like. Homemade sauce and homemade meatballs would be delish. Regular mozzarella cut into strips or chunks would work fine.)

1 batch breadstick dough*
1/2 jar spaghetti sauce
20 frozen meatballs
4 string cheese

Breadstick Dough-

1 teaspoon yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
3/4 cup warm water
1/4 cup oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
approx. 2 1/2 cups flour

Pour water in mixing bowl. Sprinkle yeast and sugar on top. Allow to get foamy. Add oil, salt, seasoning, and flour. Mix together using dough hook for about five minutes- dough should be soft, but not sticky. Add flour as needed. Place dough, covered, in oiled bowl in warm place for 30-45 minutes. Punch down and proceef

Here's what you'll have at this point:

Roll dough on lightly floured surface into a large oblong shape, just under 1/4" thick I'd say. Let rest for a few minutes.:

Cut into four equal "rectangles". I use a pizza cutter for this:

Spread a couple tablespoons of sauce on each. Top with one string cheese.

Line 5 meatballs along each string cheese.

Brush a little water along the edges- this will make it seal better.

Fold short ends in toward middle.

Fold long sides.

Line up your stuffed sandwiches on a greased cookie sheet.

Cover and let rise for at least 30 minutes in a warm place or, alternatively, up to a few hours in a coolish place

Bake at 375 for about 15 minutes.

I loved the way the breadsticks dough tasted you! I did make my meatballs from scratch using this recipe. overall a great recipe. I could not prpare this on a weeknight but makes a great weekend recipe. I am sure they would freeze well as well.
