Meatball Sammich

Food is the major rival of the Big Game this Super Sunday.  Long gone are the days of chip and dip and today’s Bowl partygoers chow down on a range of dishes from gourmet pizza to Super Bowl snack stadiums.

A favorite that I like to make: The Meatball Sammich.  A delicious classic that’s sure to be a crowd pleaser.

Make this recipe your own by switching out marinara for BBQ sauce or adding your favorite cheese.  Give it a try and post a comment on my Facebook page or tweet me at @chefaramreed #Superbowl.
