Homemade pepperoni and meatball marinara grilled 3 cheese sandwich. I could only eat half because it was very filling but tasty. My daughters were the same as me, couldn't eat all of it but my boys could. My homemade mini meatballs were succulent and went perfectly with my homemade marinara sauce.
Ingredients for my mini meatballs
1 lb 90% lean ground beef
1/2 small onion, minced
2 clove garlic, minced
salt & black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1-2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
I mixed all ingredients well and shape into mini balls and fried them in olive oil.
I made my own marinara sauce. Tomatoes, tomato paste, parsley, oregano, garlic, olive oil, red wine...........
While marinara sauce simmered I stirred in mini meatballs, diced pepperoni, sausages, extra Parmesan cheese.
For the sandwich I used fresh baked bread slices and 3 cheeses (shredded mozzarella, Norwegian cheese, extra Parmesan cheese)
First I grilled 1 sliced bread in a skillet over medium high heat with 1 tablespoon plant margarine, cook for 2 minute on one side and flipped over. Then topping my bread slice with 2 Norwegian cheese slices, 6 slices pepperoni, topped with Parmesan cheese, spooned in meatball, pepperoni, sausage marinara, topped with shredded mozzarella cheese, with another 2 Norwegian cheese slices and topped with another bread slice. Turned sandwich over and grilled for 3-4 minutes until cheese melted.
