Meatballs on Zucchini 'Hoagies'

Meatballs on Zucchini Hoagie-Fritters


½ onion, diced finely
1 lb Italian turkey sausage
1 lb lean ground beef
2 eggs

Zucchini 'Hoagie' Fritters
3 medium zucchinis, shredded
½ onion, diced
½ cup ground pork rinds
3 eggs
2 tablespoons olive oil
jar marinara sauce

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Dice the onion very finely with a knife or a food processor. Mix ½ of the diced onion in with eggs, beef, and sausage.
2. Ball up and fry in a non stick pan until all sides are browned. Remove and place on a foil covered baking sheet and bake an additional 10 minutes or until cooked through.
3. For the fritters, place the second half of the diced onion in a strainer. Shred all the zucchini and put it in a strainer as well. Squeeze zucchini and onion repeatedly to remove all excess moisture. Once dry, remove from strainer.
4. In a large bowl, mix the zucchini and onion with the remaining 'hoagie' ingredients. Drizzle 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large frying pan set to medium-high heat. Spoon and shape the mixture into the pan making "hoagie" shapes. Be careful not to make them much bigger then five inches long or they may break when you try to flip them! Cook about 4-5 minutes on each side or until brown and crispy.
5. To assemble: place your 'hoagie' on a plate, spread with marinara sauce and place 3 meatballs on top of each one. Serve with additional marinara sauce.

  1. I LOVE this idea- I'm getting kinda tired of spaghetti squash & need a new meatball vehicle :)

  2. I really liked this idea, but for some reason it just didn't turn out how I expected it to. I followed the recipe precisely. It seemed like there was too much egg maybe? I'm not sure. Everyone else that ate it really liked it though.

  4. It definitely depends on the amount of zucchini. I guessed 3 medium, but I had 2 gigantic zucchini. Next time I will try to measure it in cups of shredded zucchini to help with the ratio. Thanks for the feedback! Also try spicing it up with some garlic powder and onion powder, that way it won't be too sweet. Those are my best tweaks I can think of :)

  5. Oh my Kelly I have a zucchini recipe for you. I just had some tonight and could eat three more bowls full! Julienne 1 whole zucchini. Mean while crush 2 garlics in 2 tbs of oil. I used grape seed oil. I'm sure olive will do just fine. Take the garlic out for a second
    Add zucchini, 2tsp of Italian
    Add some red pepper flakes for heat. Add garlic back in.
    Cook 2 minutes till zucchini is getting soft. Take off heat and top with 2tbs of toasted chopped almonds and a little salt.

    It is soooooooo good!

  6. Yum! Sounds good! I'll try it tonight. I made some homemade pesto I will use that. It is waaaayyyy too heavy on garlic so it would be perfect in this recipe! I'll try to post it soon!
