Need a quick and easy dinner recipe? Make this fun twist on sloppy joes! Just heat meatballs with sloppy joe sauce and serve in a warm and toasty bun for an easy baked meatball sub.

Who doesn't love a good sloppy joe? I loved them as a kid and as a mom, I love that sloppy joes are an easy dinner that I can whip up quickly.

A few years ago I made Sloppy Joe Turkey Lettuce Wraps that everyone loved!  I wanted to make another recipe using one of Manwich's yummy sauces and a little creativity to create a delicious dinner.

I've been craving meatball subs lately and Manwich Monday gave me the idea to make easy sloppy joes meatball subs.

I was pretty sure Manwich would make a great sauce for a meatball sub. I chose to use frozen, store bough meatballs because it was just one of those days, but cooked homemade meatballs will work, too.

Pick your favorite rolls and cheese. Bolillo rolls are our current favorite rolls so I used those along with a cheddar cheese mix.

Making the subs is easy. Place the meatballs in a medium sized pot.  Our rolls took 3 meatballs each.

Cover with your choice of Manwich sauce. I used the thick and chunky. Stir to cover the meatballs with sauce and heat over medium high heat until the meatballs and sauce are hot.

No need to thaw the meatballs, either. They'll thaw right in the sauce.

Once the meatballs and sauce are warmed through, scoop the meatballs in to the buns. Spoon a little extra sauce on top. Cover with cheese and bake.

Sloppy joe meatballs subs are amazing! We all loved them!
