Bartolini's Meatball Sandwich
Meatballs can be stored in your refrigerator for 4 to 5 days after arrival, or can be frozen for up to 2 months. Store French rolls at room temperature if using within 2 days, otherwise store in your freezer. If you freeze the meatballs, defrost in your refrigerator overnight. Rolls can be removed from your freezer 2-3 hours before making sandwiches. Mozzarella cheese and peppers should be stored in your refrigerator. Peppers will stay fresh for 1-2 days after arrival. Cheese will stay fresh for up to 1 week.
Bread: If frozen, defrost. Pre Heat Oven to 350 Degrees. Bake bread for 8-10 Minutes until Golden Brown. Remove and let sit at room temp. Meatballs (Thawed): Remove Plastic Film from tray, transfer meatballs and red gravy into an over-safe casserole or baking dish with cover or foil and bake in 350-degree oven for 20-25 minutes.
To Serve: Slice Bread ¾ the way through. Add 3 meatballs per sandwich and Cover with Red Gravy. Add Peppers, Cover with 2 Slices of Mozzarella Cheese and Bake face-up on foil-lined baking sheet until melted – about 5-6 Minutes. Enjoy!
