National Crisp Sandwich Week with Seabrook #crispsarnieweek

It's pretty hard to beat a good sandwich...and then you add some crisps to it!! We're all lovers of a good crisp sarnie in this household and the kind people over at Seabrook sent us a packet of their tasty cheese and onion crisps to add into any sandwich we liked. So many ideas ran through my head but I settled on an adaptation of the classic meatball sub. Yummy homemade meatballs in a rich bolognese, topped with grated cheese and crushed cheese and onion Seabrook crisps, all sandwiched between two slices of brown bread. Delicious!

Fancy making some for yourself? You'll need;

  • Meatballs - minced beef, 1 diced onion, mixed herbs, 1 clove of finely chopped garlic, salt & pepper, 1 beaten egg.
  • Bolognese sauce
  • Cheddar cheese, grated
  • Packet of Seabrook cheese and onion crisps, crushed
  • Brown bread

First up, you'll need to prepare your meatballs. Cook off some diced onion, the mixed herbs and finely chopped garlic until soft. Then add them to the minced beef. Add a pinch of salt, some black pepper and 1 beaten egg to the mix, to help hold everything together, then mix up all the ingredients (hands work best for this). Shape the mince into smallish meatballs then add them to a frying pan of hot oil and cook for around 10-15 minutes, turning often.

While the meatballs are cooking, warm up some bolognese sauce in a small saucepan. Once the meatballs are ready add them to the sauce and ensure they are covered well. Spoon the meatballs and sauce onto fresh brown bread, topping with grated cheddar cheese and crushed Seabrook cheese and onion crisps. Sandwich it all together with another slice of bread on top, tuck in and enjoy.

Disclaimer : I was sent a packet of crisps from Seabrook to help me create my sandwich. This recipe is an entry into the National Crisp Sarnie Week competition with Seabrook crisps.
