Recently I learned about a new brand Carando and decided to make a simple meatball sub. I had never tried anything from their brand before, but the meatballs did not disappoint. Can’t wait to try more from Carando!
They began their story almost a century ago along the cobblestone streets of Torino, Italy. Peter Carando, the founder, learned the Italian tradition of sausage-making while being an apprentice at his local butcher shop.He set sail for America with his own authentic recipes in hand. He begin handcrafting the finest Italian meats this country had ever tasted. Carando has remained true to those recipes to this day. This has helped Carando earn its place as one the world’s finest purveyors of Italian deli meats.
I love having meatballs for dinner but I never enjoyed gathering all the ingredients and forming them into balls. I found the Carando ready made meatballs at Food Lion close to the hamburgers that are already pattied up.

Our son Carsyn loves meatballs subs so he really enjoyed this simple meatball sub. Normally I would go out and buy him a sub because I never wanted to make them. This saves the hassle & money of going out to eat. Now we can make them at home, enjoy the extra time together, and they taste even better.
