Baked Ikea Meatball Subs Recipe

Firstly, grease your dish and set to one side. Preheat your oven to 210°C/Fan 200°C.

Then pop the frozen meatballs into a saucepan along with the bolognese sauce. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat then simmer gently for about 10 minutes until the meatballs are heated through.

While the meatballs are cooking, slice the finger rolls in half but not all the way (if they aren’t already pre-done) and place them into the greased dish.

Melt the 4tbs of butter in a little ramekin in the microwave in 10 second intervals then brush the tops of the rolls with it. (This stage is entirely optional but I think it tastes wonderful!)

When the meatballs are heated through, place 4 into each roll. (Well spotted, the little one is for my 18 month old daughter – I don’t think she could eat a whole one yet!)

Then pour some bolognese sauce over to just about cover the meatballs. (Don’t overdo it!)
