Meatball Grinder

I know most people would call this a sub or a hoagie, but where I grew up they were called grinders.  Not just the meatball kind but even ham or tuna.  The cheese was melted into the roll in the pizza oven and then then meat was heated as well before veggies were place on them.  Making these with frozen meatballs is an easy weekday fix for dinner.
