Red Pepper, Sweet Chili Meatball Sandwich...

What a gorgeous day we have had today! Winter has taken a back step and allowed summer to have a last few moments of golden glory. So why not enjoy this last bit of sunshine with a bit of easy but tasty midweek al fresco dining.

These super scrumptious meatball sandwiches are made from scratch but take no time at all and is a crowed pleaser all round!


500g lean beef mince
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 red peppers, small dice
1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
salt and pepper

1 can tomato
1 clove garlic, chopped
handfull of fresh basil, chopped. Put some aside for garnish.
1 tbsp sweet chili sauce
1 tsp sweetner
salt and pepper

fresh roll/french loaf
salad leaves
cheese, grated
tomato, sliced


1. In a bowel mix and combine your mince, diced pepper and sweet chili. Season.
2. Roll into balls
3. Put meatballs into a pot and brown off slightly then pour in your canned tomato. Into that add the rest of the sauce ingredients and stir. Gently.
4. Cook down until the sauce thickens and gains richness and the meatballs are cooked through.
5. In the mean time toast or bake your roll. I use the fresh ones you need to bake. It takes about 8 - 10 min.
6. Assemble your sandwich. Salad, tomato, meatballs, sauce and then sprinkle with cheese and fresh basil.

Its a real mouthful and a treat for the tastebuds. As you can tell Miss Angel was trying to give me her cute face so she could get in on the meatball goodness too.

My Slimming Worlders don't worry as I made a version for us too. Its the same but bread free. Serve the meatballs and sauce on a bed of salad and use your HEA for cheese. its about 1 syn per serving due to the sweet chili sauce and worth every bit.
