2. Bake in preheated oven to medium (160°F) doneness or until no longer pink in center and juices show no pink color. Pour off drippings. Conventional oven: 400°F; 18 to 20 minutes. Convection oven 375°F, 12 to minutes.

Prepared barbecue sauce2 gallons
4. For each serving: Place 1 ounce lettuce, if desired, on bottom half of 1 roll. Top with 5 meatballs and drizzle with small amount of sauce. Cover with top of roll.

NOTES: Due to the natural nitrate content of certain ingredients often used in meatballs, such as onions, celery and bell peppers, meatballs may remain pink even if a 160°F internal temperature has been reached.

Always check the internal temperature using an instant-read thermometer to be certain it reaches 160°F.

Meatballs may be made ahead and kept warm in barbecue sauce on steam table. Assemble sandwiches as needed.
