The whole point of this is to get supper ready easily and quickly but to give the impression that a lot of thought has been put in to fortifying your nearest and dearest.
I am not good with meatballs. I don't get the seasoning right and they end up being bland and boring. The thing is - my family loves meatballs. The secret... cheat!
I buy ready-made hamburger patties from my butcher. I divide each patty into four and roll into balls. Viola - meatballs!! They can be grilled of fried or even added into a fresh tomato sauce.They really are the perfect solution to meatballs.
For my meatball sub you need the meatballs (make your own or take my short-cut). You also need a french loaf. I went to the supermarket and popped one under my arm and carried on shopping for other essentials. When I got to the till I paid for everything and then the lady said: " Ma'am, would you like to pay for the bread under your arm?". So,pay for the bread, then bring it home.
You need a quick tomato sauce, made from frying an onion and then adding a tin of chopped tomatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste and simmer for about 10 minutes.
Cut the french loaf down the middle, add cooked meatballs, tomato sauce and cover with grated cheese. Grill until the cheese is melted and cut into manageable pieces. I served it with some chopped lettuce, tomato and avocado mixed with mayo.
