Grinder with Melted Arla® Dofino® Creamy Havarti

This grinder has big flavor for the big game!

  • 1 medium trimmed and finely chopped eggplant
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 1/2 pound pork or lamb ground beef
  • 1/3 cup chopped parsley
  • 1/3 cup chopped mint
  • 2 cloves chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemons rind
  • 16 Arla® Dofino® Creamy Havarti Slices (shred half for meatball mixture and the rest for slicing)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 12 small hoagie rolls

Instructions

Arrange the eggplant on a baking pan on toss with 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast in 400°F oven for 30 minutes. Remove and bring to room temperature. Toss the eggplant with ground meat, parsley, mint, garlic, lemon rind, and shredded havarti. Roll into 36 walnut-size meatballs. Heat remaining olive oil in a skillet and brown the meatballs evenly, about 5 minutes. Transfer them to a baking pan and bake them until thoroughly cooked, about 5 minutes. When ready to serve, stuff the rolls with the meatballs and top with thin slices of Arla® Dofino® havarti. Arrange sandwiches on a baking pan and return to the oven until cheese melts, about 4 minutes.
