what's cooking wednesday - meatball sandwiches

Oh God love me! Would you believe I was going to post another frosting recipe (mocha this time, so yum) this week? But I'm going to be strong and refrain. For at least a week anyway. That's my personal guarantee. Nope this week, it's all about the meatballs. Mmmm I love meatballs. My sister-in-law makes some tasty ones. I have to convince her to share her recipe with me. So you aren't gettting a recipe for meatballs this week, but rather a suggestion of what you should do with them once you have them. And I'm not even picky about how you get them. Make them yourself, get Nonna to make you some or buy a box of frozen ones.

Meatball sandwiches

Meatball Sandwiches

meatballs (already cooked)
tomato sauce
mozzarella cheese, shredded
parmesan cheese
crusty rolls

Take your crusty roll and slice it in half, being careful not to slice all the way through. So you create a sort of pocket in your bun. Now stuff the cavity full of as many meatballs as will comfortably fit. Top with tomato sauce, parmesan cheese and shredded mozzarella. Place under the broiler until the cheese is melted.

Recipe Notes: Super easy and super delicious. And it's a great way to use up leftover meatballs. I like this recipe because it's easily adaptable. Add some sauted onion, green pepper and/or mushrooms before topping it with the cheese. Or try cheddar (like I did in the pic) or provolone. The combinations are endless.

What is What's Cooking Wednesday and how can I play?

What's cooking Wednesday was born out of a desire to get out of that what's for dinner rut. Playing is easy, on Wednesday post a recipe that has been tried and tested by you and then pop over here and add your name to the Mr. Linky. When entering your name also add the name of the recipe in brackets and make sure you link to your What's Cooking Wednesday post and not just your blog's front page. *All front page links will be deleted!* Don't make me be a jerk. And don't forget to link back here, the home of What's Cooking Wednesday.

So for example I would write Shan (Speedy Chicken Stir Fry) in the name section. For the URL section I would post this: http://shanrev.blogspot.com/2007/10/whats-cooking-wednesday-speedy-chicken.html

I'll let you in on a little secret, my WCW recipes are almost never made on a Wednesday. So feel free to cook and photograph whenever you have time and join us posting on Wednesday
