Mozzarella Meatball Sub

So yesterday was Sunday and Sarah was off doing Sarah things for most of the day and left me in charge of organising my own lunch.

I decided that this was a great opportunity to perfect my Mozzarella Meatball Sub.

I had some meatballs left over from when we made our own meatballs not too long ago that were easily defrosted.

A visit to the supermarket was required to pick up a few supplies that I did not already have on hand, including mozzarella cheese, basil leaves and fresh bread rolls.

I already had garlic and a tin of diced tomatoes for the sauce. As you can tell this was shaping up to be an excellent lunch.

The weather outside was uninviting and with a light drizzle I did not feel like pulling out the Weber kettle from the garage so used the Weber go-anywhere portable grill.

This helped great with the weather as this grill doesn’t need as much fuel to get to temperature compared to the larger kettle and I was able to use the left over briquettes from my last grill.

The sub came out fantastic, garnished with parsley. I’ll let the pictures to the rest of the talking. You can catch the recipe below.
