Make Something Monday- Meatball Sub Casserole

I got this recipe courtesy of my Aunt Jenn. Don’t know where she got it from, but it’s goo-ood!

Meatball Sub Casserole


1/3 cup chopped green onion
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
3 Tbs. grated Parmesan cheese
1 pound ground beef
1 loaf Italian bread, but into 1 inch slices
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup mayo
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
1 jar (28 oz) spaghetti sauce
1 cup water
2 garlic cloves, minced
To make meatballs: In a bowl, compine ontions, brumbs and parmesan cheese. Add beef and mix well. Shape into 1 inch balls; place on a rack in a shallow baking pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until no longer pink. (OR you can take the easy way out like me and use frozen meatballs! I prefer the Costco brand, but we used Armor brand this time and it was still yummy.)
Meanwhile, arrange bread ina single layer in an ungreased 13x9x2 inch baking dish (all of the bread might not be used).
Combine cream cheese, mayo, Italian seasoning and pepper; spread over the bread. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup mozzarella. Combine sauce, water and garlic; add meatballs.

Pour over cheese mixture; sprinkle with remaining mozzarella.

Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until heated through.
NOTE: Do not use light or fat-free mayonnaise!


  1. We will definitely have to try this!

  2. Ohhhh Girlie I'm so going to make this one! This looks too good not to try and I know the boys would love it :).

    I guess I'll have to go out and buy non light mayo, that's all I have :).

    TY Girlie, I'll post it when I make it and of course a link to you πŸ™‚

  3. Ooooo…it is YUMMY!!!! I think I got it from a Taste of Home magazine years ago. I, too, have gone rogue and get the premade meatballs. My kids have been BEGGING for this lately…maybe I should stop by for dinner tonight?? I'm planning on Parmesan Encrusted Chicken tonight, if I can ever get to the store ($1.69 lb chicken breast @ Fry's!)

    Glad you like it and thanks for the link! Love ya–hope lil princess is feeling better and that she and her bro are having fun with my “little one”. πŸ™‚

  6. Sewing-Chick says

    Oh my gosh, this sounds delicious! I had an almost-full jar of spaghetti sauce that I used up today (made baked ziti) but I wish I had seen your post first because that sounds GOOD!

  7. Ooohhhh…it's a perfect potluck dish, too. Maybe for tonight! Picnic potluck in the park!

    (Hey, come to see my new blog layout! I am excited!!!!)

  8. That looks really good!

  9. Ok girlie I so made this last night for dinner :). The boys LOVED it, even the hubs liked it and he's hard to please!

    I had a good amount left over so I of course took it to daycare and they had it for lunch and loved it!

    Thanks my dear for the wonderful recipe I have it scheduled for a few weeks with a link to you πŸ™‚

    Girl, that looks DELICIOUS! And, it just hit me that I forgot about MSM! I have been sick and even my dog got into some trouble and had to get a cortisone shot and meds. Let's just say that it's been a rough start to the week-lol.

  11. That looks yummy! I'm going to put that down as a must make!

  12. Even if you didn't make something this monday.. I am still loving the deliciousness of this dish!!!!!!!

  13. We love meatballs! I think my hubby would flip if I made this for him!

  14. I saw this recipe in Quick Cooking magazine and made it for dinner last week – it was a HUGE hit! My daughter at the leftovers for lunch twice in a row! πŸ™‚

  15. oops – forgot to proofread – that should say ate the leftovers, not at!

  16. Oh, one more thing – I know the recipe says not to use light mayo, but that’s all I ever buy, so that’s what I used – and it turned out just fine. Not sure why the recipe says you can’t use it!

  17. I have been looking for this recipe again! Glad I remembered you posted it on here awhile ago!
