    Why on earth not just cut out the burnt portion of the hoagie bun with a knife or scissors? That burned bread will ruin the sandwich, yet it can be salvaged. I'm shocked the didn't do anything about it.

    So... why not cut the sausage into three even sections and then just roll them up from there? Can we do that?

    I still can't believe she kept the burnt buns (the burns) and finished through without a redo! This isn't even proper for consommation.

    What's the point of turning the sausage links into balls? Why not just brown and braise the links themselves?

    The thing about fennel cores sounds like what I think about only using the white part of leeks. Why waste the greens? Them's tasty onion leaf!

    super interested to know why you did not add an egg and breadcrumbs to meatballs? I always add them A to help bind and B it adds richness and moisture, no? Am I making a mistake, would love your expert feedback, thx.

    Why make the sausage into balls? I don't understand why you'd want to make a sandwich harder to eat?

    You should always serve fennel with coconut oil so it's easier to slide into the trash.

    Why not just use crushed tomatoes instead of crushing them by hand?

    if you're toasting bread in the oven on the broiler and you're worried about burning it just lower the rack or the tray you're using so it's not too close to the heating element

    3 big meatballs per huge loaf of bread? Why not cut the meatballs in half and put 6 per loaf so you get a bite meatball in each bite? Over the top, out of touch celebrity chef nonsense...

    Are you all using that broiler with the door closed? I'm pretty sure that's an open-door broiler that some idiot installed in the bottom of the front-knob ranges y'all have.

    What’s the point of using whole pealed tomatoes and breaking them up instead of using crushed tomatoes? I know that there’s probably a difference I just don’t know what it is.

    ProTip: When you top-split ANY sandwich roll, cut an uninversed triangle. Take out some of the center. Don't cut straight down, don't cut a "V" -- Instead, cut a ∆ into the center. It removes enough crumb to let you fill, but also allows the bun to pinch closed on top.

    Believe me Carla, the reason your great grandmother stood around eating scraps while everyone else ate is because she too ate the best morsels during cooking.
    That's half of why we become cooks and feed others. It's a good, loving, generous-seeming way to get the best goodies!
    I rarely eat when my guests do... because I'm so full of the good bits.
    You're keeping tradition alive!
