The venison and snow goose meatballs add a wild game twist to the traditional meatball sub recipe

It’s hard to turn down a good meatball sandwich. This wild game version is made with a mixture of venison, snow goose and classic Italian spices and herbs. Toasted in a soft hoagie bun with tangy marinara, fresh mozzarella and aged Parmesan cheese, this meatball sandwich has Subway beat. If you make a big batch of meatballs, serve the rest over pasta noodles.

Serves: 8 meatballs (2-4 sandwiches)
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes

  • ½ pound ground venison
  • ½ pound ground snow geese
  • ¼ cup breadcrumbs

  • 1 jar marinara sauce

2. Heat oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Form meat into balls and brown on all sides in the oil. Do not crowd the pan and brown in batches if necessary. Add marinara sauce to the pot with the meatballs. Simmer sauce and allow the meatballs to cook through for 10 minutes.
