  • Use large meatballs for the best sandwich. Smaller ones just aren't the same.
  • Wrap your sandwiches in tin foil to keep the bread soft while they bake.
  • In the last 5 minutes of the bake time, open the aluminum foil at the top to brown the cheese.
  • A little parsley and extra cheese at the end goes a long way!
