Easy Meatball Party Sub Casserole

The bread at the bottom stays crispy while the toppings are hot and bubbly—a perfect party dish to fill up your guests.

  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (12-oz.) baguette
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning, plus more for topping
  • 1 lb. Italian-style meatballs, thawed if frozen
  • 1 (24-oz.) jar spaghetti sauce
  • 2 c. shredded mozzarella
  1. Preheat the oven to broil. Microwave the butter and garlic until the butter melts, then brush the bottom of a 9"-x-13" broiler-safe baking pan with half of the garlic butter.
  2. Slice the baguette into 2-inch slices and fit into the baking pan cut side down, cutting some if necessary to fill the bottom of the pan without large gaps. Brush the cut side of all of the bread slices with the remaining butter and garlic. Broil until the top of the bread is golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove the bread and lower the oven temperature to 350º.
  3. While the bread toasts, combine the cream cheese, mayonnaise, and Italian seasoning in a small bowl and beat until very smooth.
  4. Spread this mixture over the toasted bread in an even layer.
  5. Cut the meatballs in half and make a layer of them on top of the cream cheese mixture. 6- Pour the spaghetti sauce over the meatballs and sprinkle with mozzarella and more Italian seasoning. Bake until the cheese is melted and the sauce is bubbling hot, about 30 minutes. Serve.
