1/2 Photos of Swedish Meatball Sandwich
For my final exam in one of my culinary classes, we had to create a sandwich that reflected a culture which we had some familiarity with. I'm of Swedish decent, and so decided to make an open faced Swedish meatball sandwich. This is the result, and I passed the exam with full points. I use the meatballs from my Authentic Swedish Meatballs, but if you don't feel like making them from scratch, use a Swedish meatball that is easy for you. Don't use an Italian meatball, the flavor profile is entirely different. FYI- The exam I originally made this for required the use of chicken, so I subbed ground chicken thigh for the meats in the recipe I noted above. Feel free to do so if you'd like, it still tasted authentic as the seasonings were true to the original.
