Well right off the bat I can say BS. Meatballs are typically made out of beef not sausage meat. You can use sausage meat but then its not a classic meatball. Beef, eggs, garlic, onion and bread crumbs and S and P is an Italian meatball. You can make them in the oven but again a "classic meatball" is fried in olive oil. I love ATK but you guys got this one wrong. She burned the rolls !

Tut tut tut... SMH, Oh Carla why are you always scorching buns, you did it with the smash-burgers and now these too... Love your recipes but I must say "it is a bit of an anti-climax to the presentation when sandwich/burger bread is burnt 😞

brushing the outside of the rolls with unsalted butter will help them not burn.

Why use canned WHOLE tomatoes? Why not get canned DICED tomatoes if we're just gonna rip 'em up?

Anybody remember the way subway cut their bread way back in like 95, they did that U gouge that the meatballs just snugged in perfectly and then they put the bread strip on top like a hat. I miss that.

How do you burn the bread lmaoooooooooo.
There are two types of cooking personalities. Those who eat the scraps and those who eat the best for themselves. Carla and I are the same person. 😂

If it's in New York, you're not allowed to call it a hoagie roll. Important.

Oh, and especially not if she's cutting them along the top like a lobster roll. Just cultural slaughter right here.

The meatball miscount might be a matter of the scale's precision. If it only goes down to ounces, but not tenths of an ounce, then after that many two ounce meatballs you could definitely come up one or two short or... long. I like metric for stuff like this. There's 28 grams in an ounce, which means a digital scale is going to be more precise* in metric than imperial. *Not necessarily accurate, as precision and accuracy are different things.

"It is amazing how vegetal and garlicky it is without even being seasoned" - she says, while tasting a sauce that is basil, garlic, and oil.

I’ve just realized that Carla looks like my mom... I think thats why I like her, especially since she usually has the Italian food videos, which coincidentally was my mom’s fave kind of food.

What's the point of doing meatballs if you don't add anything to the sausage ? Why not put slices of sausage in the sandwich ?

ok, so burnt buns aside, and too much sauce made, you couldn't eat this, cut the meatballs in half before putting in the roll, then you might be able to fit it in your mouth???

BEST MEATBALL SANDWICH EVER. Pesto is the besto, no joke! Totally recommend and what I learned the first time making was to be sure and slice the fresh mozzarella THIN, otherwise it takes a bit to broil and get crispy (which is also what happens to the rest of the bread). Ironically enough, I burned one side of my buns, too. haha

You should've replaced the bread!! because most people would replace it in their homes it is not a camera thingy that you're trying to avoid. I know exactly how a burnt bread would ruin the sandwich this is not Gordan Ramsy's through away because of arrogance, it is because it tastes bad! really bad!!

@Ibrahim Saleh lol. well, excuse me mr. critic. I do love me some heavy metal. neither do i care for your taste in food. like i said, you do YOU. but i might look for you in the comments next time Carla burns buns and rub the burnt edges on your nose.
Ibrahim Saleh
Ibrahim Saleh 3 months ago
@pike666db I don't really care whether you eat charcoal or rocks or even heavy metals but if there is a content that is posted to the public on a channel that I'm enjoying I'll through my insights when the picture isn't pleasent to my eyes and I don't really care if u like my opinion or not it is not intended for you and even if you're the content maker this the critics deal with it not everybody is going to align with your ideas.
pike666db 3 months ago
@Ibrahim Saleh well, that's exactly what I'm talking about. not all people like their meat or chicken burnt, even if slightly. to some, it is sacrilege. don't be telling other cooks how to approach their technique or how to deal with less than perfect results. don't be telling other people how to enjoy their food. you do YOU. live and let live.
