Cheesy meaty fingers then. As always the calorie counts are approximate - you can lower them depending on what bread roll you use, how much cheese you put on vs how much you say you put on, whether or not you bother with the sauces...just a guide folks. This makes eight halves and the calorie count is for two, so one submarine roll.
500g of extra lean beef mince
four submarine rolls - we used the bog standard Tesco white rolls, but you can drop the calories by using wholemeal or smaller buns if you want
50g panko or other breadcrumbs
one egg, beaten
one medium onion, diced fine
one teaspoon each of thyme, garlic powder, pepper
half a teaspoon of salt
two tablespoons of tomato ketchup
one tbsp of Worcestershire sauce
green chilli sliced finely (or use jalapenos)
50g of mixed grated cheese - we used spicy because we're scum
a few slices of pepperoni
preheat the oven to 220 degrees
slice the submarine buns along the horizontal and pop on a baking sheet with the cut side up
bake in the oven until lightly toasted and then remove, turning down the temperature to 190 degrees
mix together the beef, onion, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, garlic, beaten egg, salt and pepper and panko in a bowl until nicely combined
spread the beef across the top of the buns, making sure to cover all the edges so the buns don't burn
spread the tomato sauce on top with a little egg brusher
bake in the oven for about 25 minutes, making sure the beef is cooked through at the end by breaking a bit off and checking it isn't pink
remove from the oven, add the pepperoni, chilli, then top with cheese and grill until bubbling and lovely
drizzle with chilli sauce and serve
as discussed, feel free to jettison the pepperoni, extra cheese or chillis to control the heat and calories of this dish. I mean we both know you won't but isn't it a pleasure to do the dance
