The classic Italian meatball sub gets the Buffalo wing treatment with this crowd-pleasing sandwich.  The celery and blue cheese round out the game day wing experience in submarine form. 


  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • Spicy Shark Wing Sauce
  • 1 tsp. Falksalt Smoked Sea Salt Flakes
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 cup panko, breadcrumbs or Pork Panko
  • blue cheese, crumbled
  • Celery sliced thin into half moons (some leaves are nice to add too)
  • Brioche buns or hero rolls, toasted


  1.  Preheat oven to 400º.
  2. In a large bowl, combine ground chicken, salt, pepper, 1 tablespoon wing sauce, breadcrumbs and egg yolk. Mix until all ingredients are incorporated. Shape into balls.
  3. In a large pan over medium heat, brown the meatballs in a little olive oil, about 3 minutes per side.  Finish in the oven until cooked through about 15 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and gently toss the balls in a bit more wing sauce.
  5. Toss celery with salt and a bit of olive oil 
  6. Layer meatballs into the toasted soft roll with celery, crumbled blue cheese and celery. 

    Pro Tip: Forming the meatballs will be easiest if the mixture is chilled and your hands are slightly wet.
