Swedish Meatball Subs

20 Cooked Perfect Angus Meatballs (frozen pre-cooked dinner size)

5 pretzel rolls, or your favorite hoagie bread

4 tablespoons butter

4 tablespoons flour

2 1/2 cups milk

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon hot sauce, or to taste

Salt & Pepper, to taste

5 large dill pickles, diced

1/4 cup preserves (lingonberry, cranberry, or other)

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake meatballs 25 minutes. Fifteen minutes in, slice each roll (not all the way through); add to lower oven rack.  Bake until toasted,  5-10 minutes. Meanwhile, in saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Whisk in flour; cook until bubbly. Whisk in milk, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Increase heat to medium high. Cook until thickened, stirring often. Assemble the subs: divide the meatballs, gravy, pickles, and preserves among the 4 rolls and serve.
