Meatball Sandwiches Are So Delicious
I like to make homemade Italian Meatballs and use them to make one of my favorite foods which is Meatball Sandwiches.
I usually make my homemade marinaria sauce and I add my cooked meatballs to the marinaria sauce. I set the crock pot on low and let the meatballs and sauce heat up.
I toast my bun for the sandwich lightly by buttering the bread lightly with butter and garlic and then toast the bread under the broiler of the stove. When the meatballs and sauce are warm I put the meatballs and sauce on the bottom of the bun. I then sprinkle the top of the meatballs with freshly grated Parmesan Cheese. I then sprinkle the top of the meatballs with shredded Mozzarella Cheese and put the sandwich under the broiler just long enough to melt the cheese.
I then close the sandwich up like in the photo above and cut it in half. It makes one of the most delicious sandwiches you'll ever have a chance to taste in your life.
I often make these and cut each sandwich up in three or four small pieces and serve them as appetizers at dinner parties. People always go back and get more and more of these delicious sandwiches. I usually serve a crockpot of marinaria sauce on the side so people can pour some of it out on their plate and dip their sandwich in it.
When I want to jazz my meatball sandwiches up I buy bulk Italian Sausage and fry it and crumble it up very fine while it is cooking. I then add it to the marinaria sauce and when you put this sauce on your meatball sandwiches people set up and take notice. Try them this way and see what you think.
