2. Unveiling the Ingredients

  • 1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
  • 4 teaspoons Italian seasoning, divided
  • 3 teaspoons garlic powder, divided
  • 1 pack (12 ounces) refrigerated chicken meatballs, cut in half
  • 1 package sweet Hawaiian dinner rolls (12 rolls)
  • 6 slices provolone cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter

3. Instructions

3.1 Preparing the Sauce-Infused Meatballs

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius).
  2. In a large bowl, combine the tomato sauce with 3 teaspoons of Italian seasoning and 1 teaspoon of garlic powder. Mix well. Add the halved meatballs to the sauce mixture and stir to ensure they are coated. Set aside.

3.2 Crafting the Meatball Sandwich Assembly

  1. Take the sweet Hawaiian dinner rolls out of the packaging, but keep them together as a bundle. Carefully cut the entire bundle of rolls in half horizontally. The bottom half should be slightly thicker than the top half.
  2. Place the bottom half of the rolls in a 13×9-inch baking dish, cut side facing upwards. Lay the provolone cheese slices over the bottom half of the rolls.
  3. Evenly distribute the meatballs and sauce over the provolone cheese layer. Sprinkle the grated mozzarella cheese over the meatballs.
  4. Place the top half of the rolls (cut side down) over the mozzarella layer.

3.3 Baking Brilliance

  1. In a small bowl, mix the melted butter with the remaining Italian seasoning and garlic powder.
  2. Brush the tops of the rolls with the butter mixture, ensuring they are evenly coated.
  3. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the sandwiches are heated through and the cheese is melted and bubbly.

3.4 Finishing Touch with Herb-Infused Butter

  1. Once done, remove from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving.
