My Foodie Recipe: Soggy-free meatball sandwich

Today’s recipe is a masterpiece sandwich with an air fryer twist.

I actually got the idea after ordering a meatball sub at Subway. Why not bake those meatballs? That makes them less messy than sitting in sauce for an extended period of time—and that’s how we get the “soggy-free” version of this delicious entree.

– 1 pound of ground beef ( should be able to get 15-18 meatballs)

– Simple mix of dried oregano, sea salt, black pepper and crushed red pepper flakes

– 1 egg (binds all this together)

– 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

– Half cup dried panko breadcrumbs

– Bread

– Sliced cheese, tomato, lettuce (and any other desired toppings—even bacon!)

– Tomato paste (use water to create desired consistency)

I suggest baking the meatballs the night before you eat them. And be sure to add some Frank’s Hot Sauce right before you take the first bite.
