Last Night's Dinner - Meatball Sandwich!

photo by Gustavno Rivera

1 lb. Organic Real Food Store Hamburger
1 lb. Ground Pork

I mixed the meat with some Chipotle powder, creole spices,  salt, pepper, parsley, chopped onion and garlic and some breadcrumbs with an egg together with my hands and formed them into 1 inch balls. I coated the inside of a glass baking pan with some butter and place about 15 meatball onto it, baked for about 30 minutes, until the 'balls are done. I put the meatballs into some simmering artichoke marinara sauce for about ten more minutes, while the bread was toasting in the oven. Topped off with some Parmesan.


Not bad. It does appear to have exploded however. Nobody makes a great meatball sandwich in Helena. Except ME!!!
Perhaps some peppers next time?

Looks tre-tasty, but Andrea prefers a larger ball diameter, so I always make 'em large.

I haven't yet tried baking the balls though. Usually, I fry them until brown on the outside, then combine them with the sauce (marinara) and let them simmer for a while.

Wish I had some of this for lunch!
