The family that plays together... Wario Meatball Sandwiches with caramelized onions

We play together. 
We play Mario Kart.
We play alot.
Even the 3 year old.
He usually "wooses."  But he's good with that.  In fact he likes it.
So when I told the boys we were having meatball sandwiches, Little Guy decided they would be "Wario" sandwiches.  Wario is my favorite guy to race with.

1 TBSP Olive oil
1 Onion, sliced thin
Meatballs, homemade or frozen
2 cans tomato sauce
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp italian seasoning
Sub buns
Provolone cheese slices

Heat a heavy bottomed pan over medium heat.  Add olive oil.
Add onions.  Stir every 5 minutes.

When they start to brown, turn the heat down to low.  Continue to cook on low, stirring every 5 minutes until they reached the level of brown that looks good.   Add a pinch of salt and a pinch of sugar.

In a medium pan, warm the meatballs in the tomato sauce with the spices.

When everything is good and warm, hollow out the sub buns. 
Place the onions in the hollowed out bun. 
Add the meatballs to the sub buns. 
Cover with the cheese.
Broil on high until the cheese is bubbly.
