Meatball Sandwich Casserole! All the delicious part of a meatball sub, but casserole style to feed a crowd, definitely a party-pleaser recipe.
Generally speaking, we make huge batches of meatballs a couple of times per year and then vacuum seal them in bags of 12-24 meatballs. They come in handy for throwing together meatball casseroles, like this one, adding to pasta dishes or skewering them on shish kebab sticks with veggies and grilling for a quick weeknight meal.
Meatball Sandwich Casserole
1 recipe frozen meatballs or 1 (2-3lb Bag of Frozen Meatballs)
Spaghetti sauce, 1 Jar
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 cup Italian blend cheese, shredded
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
1 loaf of fresh Italian bread, sliced
1/2 stick butter, room temp
1 tbs minced garlic
1 tsp Italian seasoning
Mix the garlic, Italian seasoning, 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese and butter together and spread them on the bread slices on 1 side only.
Arrange the bread standing up in the on the edges of a 9×13 baking dish.
In a saucepan heat the meatballs and sauce until warmed throughout, then pour the meatballs/sauce in the middle, add a layer of cheeses, more meatballs, then remaining cheese.
The bread should be standing up so it’ll get crispy.
Place in oven and bake for approximately 20 minutes at 375°F or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
Remove from oven, serve and enjoy!
