Today’s recipe comes to us out of the Abs Diet Book. It’s one of our go-to books for tasty meals that won’t have you hungry for more in an hour! Thinking of making these for our Super Bowl party, they’re that good!
Mas Macho Meatballs (number of Powerfoods: 3)
1 pound extra-lean ground beef
½ cup crushed saltine crackers
1 large onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed or whey powder
1 jar (16 ounces) tomato sauce
4 whole-wheat hoagie rolls
½ cup reduced-fat mozzarella cheese, shredded
1. Mix the beef, crackers, onion, garlic, and flaxseed or whey powder into golf ball-size meatballs.
2. In a nonstick skillet over medium heat, cook the meatballs until browned all the way around. Drain the fat from the skillet, and add the tomato sauce.
3. While the mixture is warming, use a fork to scoop out some of the bread in the rolls to form shallow trenches. Spoon the meatballs and sauce into each trench, and sprinkle with shredded mozzarella, and top with the top half of the roll.
