Pork Meatball Mini Sub/#FoodieExtravaganza

Every fall when football season rolls around, I try to make at least one new sandwich or appetizer that we haven't served in the past. This year our special sandwich is this Pork Meatball Mini Sub! This mini sub is a made up of ground pork with a little ground chuck mixed in, some seasoning and parmesan cheese, and they are served on the cutest little buns ever! They look great and taste even better, making them perfect for friends and family!

Today for #FoodieExtravaganza, everyone is cooking with pork. Once you have checked out my recipe, keep scrolling down the page to see what the rest of the #FoodieExtravaganza family created.
