Easy Meatball Sub Sliders

It is March. At my house that means MARCH MADNESS. You know the drill, brackets, basketball and awesome food. It is a serious deal. The Mr. and I spend a lot of time watching the games unfold and seeing who will be crowned the victor of March Madness. It is fun, but I love having a little fun with the food.  The Mr. loves meatball subs. Me not so much. They are usually messy which ends up on clothes, yuck. So to compromise his love of meatball subs with my need to be a neat eater I decided to try meatball sub sliders.
