These meatballs pack loads of flavor with just the right amount of spice. Top with your best homemade sauce recipe (or your favorited jarred red sauce) to really impress your guests.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Drizzle olive oil into a 9 x 13-inch baking dish and spread it around to evenly coat the entire surface. Set aside.
Using a knife, slice open the casing on each sweet Italian sausage (1/2 lb or about 2-3 links) and discard. (Or if you’d like to skip this step you can purchase loose sausage – this is what we did). Place the uncased sausage meat and Schweid & Sons burger patties (1/2 lb of either Prime Burger or The One Percenter) into a large mixing bowl. Mix to combine.
Mince 4 jarred cherry peppers, reserving about ¼ cup of the pickling liquid.
To the meat mixture, add 4 tsp salt, minced cherry peppers, pickling liquid, 1 T garlic, and 3 large eggs.
Next, add 12 oz. Martin’s Potatobred Stuffing to the meat and spices mixture.
Mix everything together by hand until thoroughly incorporated. (This will take some effort – there is just enough liquid to combine).
Roll the mixture into round, golf-ball sized meatballs (about 1 1/2 inches) making sure to pack the meat firmly.
Place the balls into the prepared baking dish, being careful to line them up snugly and in even rows vertically and horizontally to form a grid. The meatballs should be touching one another.
Roast for 20 minutes, or until brown and cooked through. A meat thermometer inserted into the center should read 165 degrees Fahrenheit when cooked through.
Remove meatballs from over and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
Slice fresh mozzarella into 1.5″ squares.
Serve 3 meatballs on each Martin’s Long Potato Roll. Top with fresh mozzarella and your favorite homemade or jarred marinara sauce. Garnish with chopped basil.
Tip: place finished sandwich under the broiler just until cheese is melty and golden. We recommend adding a little butter or pam to your Martin’s Potato Rolls to help give them a golden brown sheen.
Note: You can also use Martin’s 12 Sliced Potato Rolls for these sandwiches.
