How to Make Meatball Sub Casserole
- In a bowl, combine the onions, crumbs and Parmesan cheese.Add beef and mix well.
Shape into 1-in. balls; place on a greased rack in a shallow baking pan.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until no longer pink. (Or fry in a pan like I do.)
- Meanwhile, arrange bread in a single layer in an ungreased 13x9-in. baking dish (all of the bread might not be used). (I use a 9x12 pan)
- Combine the cream cheese, mayonnaise, Italian seasoning and pepper; spread over the bread.
Sprinkle with 1/2 cup mozzarella.
Combine the sauce, water and garlic; add meatballs.
Pour over cheese mixture; sprinkle with remaining mozzarella.
- Bake, uncovered, at 350degrees for 30 minutes or until heated through.
