If you like sloppy joe’s, you’ll love these meatball sandwiches!
Some comfort foods just can’t be equaled. You can try to make something else that measures up, but it just won’t happen. At least not the way it should.
These clean eating spaghetti meatball sandwiches are that one sandwich that hits the spot every time. Filling, hearty and downright delicious and they won’t even heat up your kitchen in this summer heat!
You can freeze these before or after cooking for convenience and if you prefer to cook these in the oven during the winter months, all you have to do is place them in a casserole dish instead of a slow cooker and bake at 350 F. until the meatballs reach at least 165 F on a meat thermometer. (I haven’t tried this yet, but I’m guessing it would take about 30-40 minutes).
These are great for barbecues and summer gatherings as you won’t get any complaints, no matter the age of your guests. However, I do highly recommend supplying your guests with plenty of napkins as these are a lot

I love your website that I just found..however, it seems to lag from time to time and I have to close and go back in….just wanted you to know…it also sometimes takes a while to scroll through recipe…it pauses a lot. It states that the website is not responding often.
Molly – I have forwarded your message to my host. If they find anything, it will get fixed. Thanks for letting me know!
These can also be made in the oven by baking uncovered @ 350 for 30 min.
Amanda – Fantastic! Thanks! 😀
This looks yummy! I have two questions:
1. How many meatballs in a serving? The photo shows three on a bun. I’m debating if I should double the recipe if I want to end up with about 10 sandwiches.
2. Can you use regular flour if you don’t care about it being as “clean?” I’d like to use what I have on hand the first time I make it. Thank you!
Catherine – If you are serving 10 people/sandwiches, I would definitely double the recipe just to be safe. And yes, you can use regular flour. But I would cut it in half. Let me know how it turns out!
Turned out great! I used wheat flour instead (it’s what I had on hand) and cut it in half. Mix was so moist and sticky that I had trouble forming balls. I think I would use 2 Tbsp. of my flour next time just for comparison. Also, I forgot to make it ahead of time to put in the crock pot, so I baked in the oven at 350 degrees for 40 minutes as recommended, and they were delicious! Thanks so much!
Catherine – Wonderful!!! I’m so glad it all worked out! 😀
I forgot to add the egg. Is that going to ruin the recipe?
Christa – No, you should be fine. 🙂
