So apparently there’s a big football game coming up soon. Or so I keep hearing. I’m not a football person. Gasp. Sorry. Never have been. My husband is a football person. I am a snack person. You know that thing about opposites attracting? It’s true. I make the snacks and he gets to watch the game and all is right in the Jones house.
I’m going to be making a plethora of carb heavy foods for the big shebang, including these mini meatball subs. These aren’t any ordinary subs. That would be boring. They’re amaze-balls sausage meatball subs with a sweet and spicy sauce served up a warm toasted steak roll.
Sausage meatballs? Yes, they’re ridiculous go ahead and try them. You might never ever go back to regular meatballs (I haven’t). What goes with pork? Apples. Duh. Pork and apples are kind of an item and I’m not one to break that up so we stuck with it. The apple comes in the form of apple butter.
It’s not just for biscuits and toast y’all! Oh no. We turned it into a sweet and spicy sauce that will have you licking your fingers in between jumping up and down when (insert your team name here) does something good. Or in between going to the snack table to get more
I happen to have friends that do like football (I’m talking lucky socks, jingling keys and all) and somehow even knowing that I don’t like it still like me. They’ve whipped up some fantastic game day treats that I know you’re going to want to see and make too!
