Italian Meatball Sub Hotdish

What You Need:
5-6 Large slices of bread {I used Texas Toast bread that was about 1in thick}
1 8oz package Cream Cheese (softened)
8oz Sour Cream
2 tsp. Pasta Sprinkle
Garlic Bread Sprinkle (optional)
2 cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1 jar (28oz) Pizza Sauce or Pasta Sauce 

I opted to make my own Meatballs, since we do raise Beef for a living it always feels wrong to buy it, but you could also use 1 lb of fully cooked frozen meatballs.
Meatball Ingredients:
1 lb Ground Beef
1 Egg
½ cup Breadcrumbs
2 tsp. Dried Parsley
1 tsp. Chopped Garlic or 2 tsp. minced
1 T Italian Seasoning
½ tsp. Salt
¼ tsp. Pepper

:When meatballs are precooked mix them in a bowl with the sauce you are using:

What To Do:
If you are making your own meatballs you’ll want to start them first.
  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
  • Shape into balls. I like smaller meatballs so there were more than 12 but you should have at least 12.
  • Place on greased baking pan. Precook for about 10-12 min. {They don’t have to be completely done because you will be putting them back in later}

:When meatballs are precooked mix them in a bowl with the sauce you are using:

While meatballs are cooking you can prepare the rest of hotdish.
{If using frozen meatballs make sure to thaw them first then Simmer over medium heat for about 10 min with sauce}


  • Place Bread slices in an ungreased 9x13 baking dish.
    • :Optional – Sprinkle Bread with your favorite Garlic Bread Seasoning:
  • Combine Cream Cheese, Sour Cream & Pasta Sprinkle; mix well.
  • Spread Cheese mixture over bread slices. Sprinkle 1 cup mozzarella over mixture.
  • Spoon Meat & Sauce over bread & cheese. Sprinkle remaining mozzarella over meat.
  • Bake uncovered for 30 min or until cheese bubbles and meatballs are no longer pink in middle

This is a very filling meal so make sure your eyes aren't bigger than your stomach - mine sure were!
