This recipe is soooo good I had to share, Art of Manliness, a manly sandwich well done!
The Bleu Cheese & Teriyaki Meatball by Ben
When I saw this entry I didn’t even have to think about whether this would make my cut. I knew it would. Meatballs, two kinds of cheeses, an English muffin. It combines all my favorite things! Can it live up to the hype I’ve created, though?
- English muffin
- Bleu cheese dressing
- Swiss cheese
- Teriyaki meatballs (couldn’t find pre-teriyaki-flavored ones as Ben recommended, so I bought meatballs and sauce and mixed them together)
THE BETTER WAY: Fresh homemade lamb mince meatballs marinaded in teriyaki marinade and sticky sauce and real blue cheese!
Step 1: Toast and Schmear the Muffin with Dressing
Toast the English muffin and “give each side a thorough schmear” with the bleu cheese dressing.
Step 2: Get the Meatballs Ready
I believe Ben used some leftover teriyaki meatballs for his creation, but I didn’t have that convenience. I mixed together some cooked (in the microwave) beef meatballs with a good helping of teriyaki sauce. Did the job just fine, if I don’t say so myself.
Step 3: Put Meatballs on Muffin
Place meatballs onto the muffin. I made two sandwiches, mainly because I was hungry. Ben suggested 4-5 per sandwich, and that’s exactly what I did. He also suggested cutting them in half, but they were small and tender enough that I figured I would be alright.
Step 4: Add Swiss and Top
Add a slice of Swiss cheese to the top, let it melt for a few seconds, and then top with the other half of your muffin.
Step 5: Enjoy!
