Bed-Stuy: Scratchbread, Hot Meatball Sandwich
Is the meatball sub the perfect sandwich? I don’t know, it just might be! What doesn’t it have…toasted bread, sharp and pungent cheese, and little orbs of meat. Orbs! Meat! Met orbs! This version is maybe the Platonic ideal of the meatball sub because it benefits from having as its foundation a delicious Scratchbread hoagie roll, which is then stuffed full of juicy chicken meatballs, which are in turn smothered in fontina cheese, spicy tomato sauce, garlicky greens, and perfectly crunchy breadcrumb salsa. In other words, this sandwich has it all.
