Who doesn’t love meatballs? Generally meatballs are made pretty similar everywhere you go but I tried to make mine a little different. I used ground pork and ground beef with some crisp chunks of bacon. I also decided to use a fresh loaf of bread for the bread crumbs as they would add more moisture to the meatballs. Not completely different but it’s a start. I took my meatballs and put them on a fresh loaf, added some homemade tomato sauce, melted some mozzarella on top and voila, Jack’s Meatball Sandwich.
Meatball Sandwich Ideas
The traditional meatball sandwich is your balls, tomato sauce, cheese and bread. These flavors combine to make a rich and hearty sandwich but sometimes adding a fresh ingredient or some sort of acid will enhance the experience and taste of the food. Keeping the sandwich exactly the same but adding some of my Salsa Verde will give the sandwich some brightness and compliment the rich flavors within the sandwich. A Salsa Verde is basically a green sauce that has either been chopped up or pureed. It mainly consists of herbs, oil, and vinegar and basically every country has their own version of this green sauce.
