Yields1 Huge Meatball Sub
Preparation Time15 min
Cooking Time1 hr 10 min
- 4 pounds ground chicken
- 1 pound pepper jack cheese
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- 2 cups breadcrumbs
- 1 cup Stubb's Original Bar-B-Q sauce
- Salt & Pepper
- 1 pound mozzarella cheese slices
- 1 bunch of cilantro
- 1 large loaf of bread
- 2 large onions, thinly sliced
Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Then add sliced onions. Let cook on low for 20-30 minutes or until caramelized.
While the onions are cooking, combine ground chicken, egg, Stubb’s Original Bar-B-Q sauce, bread crumbs, and salt & pepper in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly with hands until all ingredients are fully incorporated.
Take pepper jack cheese and cut into small 1/2" cubes. Set aside.
Using an ice cream scoop, scoop meet onto a sheet tray. Next, take your cubed cheese and place in the center of each piece of seasoned ground chicken. After you've placed all pieces of cheese in each scoop, roll meatballs into a circle with your hands until the cheese is completely covered.
Place meatballs on grill and brush with Stubb’s Original Bar-B-Q sauce. Continue to rotate and cook meatballs through. While the meatballs are grilling, chop cilantro for garnish.
Place buns on grill and lightly toast. Before plating meatballs, give them one last coating of Stubb’s Original Bar-B-Q sauce, then add to the bun.
