Arrange on baking sheet. DO AHEAD Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill.

  3. Sandwiches - 2 cups coarsely grated carrots , 1/4 cup unseasoned rice vinegar, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt, 1 tablespoon Asian sesame oil, 4 10-inch-long individual baguettes or four 10-inch-long pieces French-bread baguette (cut from 2 baguettes), Thinly sliced jalapeño chiles. Toss first 5 ingredients in medium bowl. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour, tossing occasionally.

Sauté until brown and cooked through, turning meatballs often and lowering heat if browning too quickly, about 15 minutes. Transfer meatballs to another rimmed baking sheet. Place in oven.
