A meatball sub that is baked in the oven with a topping of mozzarella cheese. The edges of the bun get brown and crispy while the cheese melts down over the meatballs, a real knife and fork sandwich.



Easy Dinner Idea: Oven Baked Meatball Sandwiches - Home Cooking Memories
The sub shop just around the corner from me makes them. I call it in, then arrive on my scooter. They bring it out to me all wrapped in double foil and I hand them my money. Still hot by the time I get back to my apartment. I can get one with hamburger, hot dot, chicken, eggplant, meatballs, Italian sausages, whatever is on the menu. So messy to eat, but OH so good.

Kind of an open sandwich, if a horizontally halved small baguette is allowed?

I like it spread with boursin and topped with sliced pear and walnuts. The combination of flavours and textures is wonderful.

A variation would be dolcelatte, grapes and walnuts.

Until I came to America, I have never seen sandwich covered with another piece of bread.
It was always open-faced sandwich growing up. Why eat extra bread? It is silly in my opinion.

I guess it might make some fillings easier to handle, without falling apart. I know my suggestion (in the post above yours) is a little tricky to hold onto - not for genteel dining - but it is well worth it!

Why do you feel it's 'silly', Charlie?

Because I'd rather have an extra layer of salami, rather than an extra piece of bread. If I am going to fill up on something, I'd prefer meat, cheese rather than bread. Though as it was suggested it is easier to hold the sandwich when it is covered.

The word sandwich comes from the English Earl of Sandwich. Apparently, he enjoyed gambling - so much so that he did not want to leave the gambling table for dinner. So he had a servant make him a sandwich, since it was easier to eat while playing cards, and the preparation became associated with his name. This happened in 1762. I imagine they became popular in the United States because so many people here (on the East Coast, at least) in the early years were English.

I've never been a fan of the open-face sandwich. When I hear "sandwich" I expect to be picking it up and eating it out of hand.

I am with Charlie. I eat my sandwiches with a knife and fork. Do we know if the Earl's sandwich had two slices of bread?
