Paleo Meatball Sub

Paleo Meatball Sub/

Meatball sub sandwiches used to be a favorite of mine, before I went grain free.I needed to make a paleo- friendly version. This is really a “go to” meal for me. And can be made relatively fast, if I have the meatballs or bread made in advance. There is a link you can click on below the recipe for my grain free garlic bread shown in photo. It is a fast, easy, grain free, 1 to 2 serving, bread you can  make very quickly. It is made with flax meal, or can be made with a coconut flour option, for those who can’t tolerate flax. I usually have it  baking in the oven while I’m making the meatballs and sauce. And the bread is done before the meatballs are done. Click below for Grain free Garlic Bread
