Meatball Sub Casserole

Stormy Stewart


If you like meatball subs, you'll love this tangy casserole - it has
all the rich flavor of the popular sandwiches with none of the mess.

Italian bread is spread with a cream cheese mixture, then topped with meatballs, spaghetti sauce and cheese.

Served with a green salad, it's a hearty meal the whole family enjoys. Mine goes crazy over it.

How to Make Meatball Sub Casserole


  • 1In 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.)
  • 2Meanwhile, 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)
  • 3Combine 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.
  • 4Bake, uncovered, at 350degrees for 30 minutes or until heated through.
