‘You know what’s perfect on a cold, rainy, miserable day?’ she asked her almost 100k Instagram followers.

Bec was quick to answer her own question. ‘A homemade Subway meatball melt!’

The ingredients required are lean beef mince, tomato pasta sauce, a hotdog roll, and Jarlsberg lite cheese slices. 

Bec also recommends adding seasonings like Italian herbs, salt, and pepper to taste – along with vegetables of your choosing.
