The humble grilled meatball sandwich - actually maybe not that humble. Another FoodSlut creation from @bboxfood. Panko parmesan Beef and pork meatballs in a marinara sauce, topped with cheddar, mozzarella and a dash of pesto. In between two pieces of sourdough although pretty sure it would taste great in what ever vessel you desire.

Slut this up to the max by melting more cheese and slide it on top (like a raclette when you’re in the alps)


  1. Mix the meatball ingredients well and then form into balls, stick them in the fridge for 30 mins

  2. Then heat some oil in a frying pan and sear the meatballs all over set to one side

  3. In the same pan add the onion and garlic, soften them down then add the tomatoes and beef stock

  4. Cook down until tomatoes start to thicken then add the balsamic and Worcester

  5. Add the meatballs and simmer until cooked through (approx. 20 mins)

  6. Add the basil at the last minute and check the sauce for seasoning, the sauces needs to relatively thick and sticky as it’s going in a sandwich

  7. Cool the meatballs and sauce

  8. Mix the mayo and pesto leave to one side

  9. Build the sandwiches with the meatball mix and cheese

  10. Heat some oil in a pan then carefully start to colour the sandwiches in the pan when you colour on both sides of the toast and the butter to the pan make sure both sides of the sandwich gets some of that butter

  11. Serve with a dollop of pesto mayo on the side.
