March 9th is National Meatball Day! We all hopefully know this children’s story. So brush off your copy of Judi and Ron Barrett’s 1978 book (or your DVD of the 2009 movie adaption) Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and travel to Chewandswallow. You can chew on this yummy vegetarian meatball sandwich while you’re at it too.

  • Two slices toasted bread (your choosing)
  • Tomato sauce (fresh or jarred)
  • A few meatless meatballs, sliced in half…makes the sandwich more manageable (I used Veggie Patch’s Vegetarian Meatballs (contain eggs))
  • Vegan Gourmet Mozzarella Cheese, grated (vegan cheese is not as firm as dairy-based cheese, so try grating across rather than angling downwards)

This sandwich is simple to put together. Be sure to heat the ingredients before constructing but pop in the microwave for 30-45secs more to melt everything together nicely.
