I love my new puppy, I love my new puppy, I love my new puppy.
Oh sorry, I have to keep reminding myself of that or I might just… well if you have ever owned a puppy, you know where I’m going with that. Don’t get me wrong, I was not delusional in thinking all my possessions would be safe when we brought her home.
I’ve had a few dogs over the years, and with each dog, more and more things get destroyed. You think I would have learned. The latest victim… My camera lens! Yup that’s right, she pulled my camera off a table by the strap… and when it hit the ground… no more lens.
The only thing saving her little puppy neck, other than that fact that she is ridiculously cute, I had an excuse to get a new lens. Thank you Maggie? Maybe she would like to play in my shoe closet??? Hmmmm.
So now I have a new lens to take lovely pictures of all my food. So I made this! This yummy, cheesy, saucy meatball sandwich. You should make this, even if you don’t have a puppy running around destroying all your stuff.
½ lbs ground turkey
½ lbs ground beef
2 slices of bread
2 Tablespoon Italian spice (I used club house)
3-5 chopped shallots
1 Tablespoon parmesan cheese
½ Cup of milk
1 Jar of tomato sauce
8 Slices of fresh mozzarella
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees, spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray
Mix all the ingredients, except tomato sauce, mozzarella, and buns, in a large bowl, by hand.
Form into 1-2 inch balls and place on the cookie sheet. Bake for 15 mins.
Meanwhile, place the tomato sauce in a large pot, on medium heat.
Once the meat balls are done, place then in the tomato sauce.
To make the sandwich, cut the buns almost in half. Take meat balls and place them on one side of the bun ( I cut my meatballs in half) and smoosh them (ya, I said smoosh) into the buns. Top with sauce and mozzarella slices. Don’t forget to spoon some sauce on the empty side of the bun, so it doesn’t burn.
Place in the oven, under the broiler , until the cheese is melted (2-5 mins)
