With the end of lockdown still some way off, the folks over at Subway have released the recipe for their famous Meatball Marinara.

Yep, if you've found yourself hankering for a foot-long, then you're in luck, because with the fast-food chain's step-by-step instructions you can enjoy it from the comfort of your own home.

So, where do we start. Well, before you get cooking, you'll need to make sure you've got all the necessary ingredients in your fridge and various cupboards.

For the meatballs:

  • 250 grams of beef and pork mince
  • 40 grams of fresh bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons of finely chopped onion
  • 1 medium egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon of dried Italian herbs
  • 1 teaspoon of salt

For the sauce:

  • 500 ml of tomato passata
  • 2 teaspoons of dried mixed Italian herbs
  • 2 teaspoon of garlic (minced)
  • 1 small onion (grated)
  • 1 tablespoons of flat leaf parsley (chopped)
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon of caster sugar
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon red chilli flakes (if you want a bit more heat)
    Looks just like the real thing.


  • Italian herb and cheese roll
  • Parmesan
  • Cheese slices

Firstly, place the beef and pork into a bowl, then chuck in the breadcrumbs, the onion, the parsley, the Italian dry herb, the egg, and salt. Mix it all together and roll them into balls.

Oil a frying pan and add your meatballs, making sure they are browned well on the outside before taking them out.

Oil another pan and add the chopped white onion, garlic, and passata. Once that is mixed, add in some more Italian dry herb, some sugar, and salt. Stir.

Next, add in your meatballs, coating them in the sauce. Cover and leave to cook.

To finish it off, you need to slice open your bread roll and add the meatballs and sauce.

Then top it with grated Parmesan, some Mozzarella, and a few slices of Cheddar cheese.

Finally, pop it in the oven for 10 minutes at 80C. And there you have it, your very own Meatball Marinara.

And once you've stuffed your face with that, how about something sweet?

Well, a chocolatier has shared his recipe to make your own Creme Eggs. Ok, Easter has been and gone, but these are good at any time of year, right?

Paul Young shared his tricks on how to recreate the treat on This Morning, and it quickly spread through the internet.
