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.
Super Football Meatball Sammich
1.5 lb of ground pork & Beef
1/2 sm onion, small diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 green onions, both green and white part, minced
1 egg, beaten
1/2-1 C bread crumbs
1 T Rosemary
Salt/Pepper for seasoning
Place Saute pan on med-hi flame, add olive oil
Add onion, green onion, and garlic and cook until vegetables are tender, 3 ~5 min
Meanwhile in large bowl, combine remaining ingredients and begin to mix
Add onion mixture to the large bowl and combine well
Add more breadcrumbs if needed
Once combined, begin to roll out meatballs into 1″ balls, and place on sheet tray lined with parchment paper
Return same saute pan to burner, over med-hi flame, add olive oil
Brown each meatball on all sides and return to sheet tray
Once browned, finish cooking meatballs in oven at 375F, for 15-20 min or until completely cooked through
Add cooked meatballs into nice sub roll, top with your favorite marinara sauce, mozzarella and put under broiler for 2 min or until cheese is melty. Top with fresh basil and serve.
