Calories 417 kcal


  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 1 24-oz jar lower sodium marinara sauce
  • 12 whole wheat slider rolls or dinner rolls
  • 4 slices provolone cheese, cut into 4 wedges each


  • Combine meat with the carrots, bread crumbs, garlic, salt, pepper and milk. Mix together well and then shape into heaping tablespoon-sized balls.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook for two minutes. Stir in the marinara sauce, then add the meatballs to the pan. Cover with a lid and allow to simmer for about 30 minutes, until meatballs are cooked through.
  • Split rolls in half and put a wedge of cheese on each half of each roll. Spoon a meatball with sauce on the bottom part of the roll and top with the other piece. Serve.


Nutrition Nugget: Adding shredded carrots to the meatballs is a great way to sneak in some veggies. They add a nice crunch and are rich with vitamins and minerals.

We (Lesley and Ann) first met years ago while training for Ironman Wisconsin. Our paths crossed again at Georgia State University while studying to become registered dietitian nutritionists. Over the years, our paths kept crossing and we soon discovered that we shared a love for menu planning. This blossomed into My Menu Pal where we help the food industry up their nutrition game to become their customer's nutrition hero.
