Broiling the Bread
3.
Turn the oven broiler on to high. Cut the ends off of each baguette loaf and discard. Cut each baguette in half and then each half lengthwise, but not all of the way through.
4.
Fold each bread piece over as much as you can without breaking it into two and place on a baking sheet, face open. (Like an open book).
5.
Broil for 3-4 minutes or until desired crisp.
Assembling the Sandwich
6.
Spoon desired amount of marinara sauce onto one side of the bread. Repeat for all four pieces.
7.
Place 4-5 meatballs on top of marinara sauce and sprinkle with roughly chopped basil.
8.
Top each with two pieces of provolone cheese.
9.
Place back into broiler for 2-3 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
10.
Serve immediately, as the sauce will cause the bread to become soggy.
