    Turkey Meatball Sandwich

    April 12, 2016

    Meatballs aren’t just for spaghetti noodles. Try placing them in a French baguette to make a saucy meatball sandwich. This sandwich reminds me of a deconstructed lasagna. A creamy ricotta mixture lines that the bread as it oozes with melted mozzarella cheese. Good thing you may already have most of these ingredients in your refrigerator and cabinets. I wanted to make a recipe that was not too complicated. Feel free to add fresh herbs to your turkey meat mixture. Even try adding chopped green onions or white onions. I always find that sage is a great compliment to any ground meat. I choose turkey because it is a healthier and leaner option. However, by no means are you limited to it. Go ahead and use ground pork or ground beef. You can also do half turkey and half pork to get a little more fat for a juicy meatball. If you want to keep it simple like I have, follow the recipe as directed.
