Bulgur is a great way to boost whole grains to a comfort food favorite. This old-school sandwich will be a hit with the family!

Ingredients

Meatballs

2/3
cup hot water
1/2
cup uncooked bulgur
1
package (20 oz) lean ground turkey
2
cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2
cup onion, finely chopped
2
teaspoons Italian seasoning
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon ground pepper
1
whole egg
1
egg white

Buns and Toppings

1
jar (25.5 oz) Muir Glen™ organic cabernet marinara pasta sauce
8
soft hoagie buns (about 6 inches long)
8
slices reduced-fat mozzarella cheese
Shredded fresh basil leaves, if desired

Directions

  • 1 In small bowl, mix hot water and bulgur. Let soak at least 20 minutes. Heat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheet with sides with foil.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in large bowl, mix remaining Meatball ingredients. Drain bulgur; add to bowl, mixing very well until incorporated. Shape into 24 golf ball-size meatballs. Place on wire cooling rack, and place inside lined cookie sheet.
  • 3 Bake 25 minutes. Place marinara sauce in 10- to 12-inch straight-sided skillet over medium heat. Carefully transfer meatballs to skillet; simmer 5 to 10 minutes or until hot.
  • 4 Place 3 meatballs in each bun. Cut cheese in half, and place over meatballs. Cover with additional sauce, and serve with shredded fresh basil.
Tips  

These meatballs are delicious over spaghetti, if you aren't feeling like a sandwich for dinner. Simply serve over your favorite type of pasta, and garnish with basil and Parmesan cheese (instead of mozzarella).

These meatballs make a great crowd-friendly dish for a game-day get-together. Rather than finishing them in a skillet, add the sauce and meatballs to a slow cooker, and cook over Low heat setting for a few hours or until warmed throughout. Recipe can easily be doubled for larger groups.
