tonight my family is so thrilled i read elizabeth’s blog… thanks to her we had a delicious dinner:

Meatball Hero Sandwiches

2 lbs frozen meatballs, italian style
2 loaves bakery Italian bread, or hoagie rolls
1 (28 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon italian seasoning
1 dash garlic powder
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

in a large pot combine frozen meatballs and spaghetti sauce. heat over medium until meatballs are heated throughout. meanwhile, mix together cream cheese, mayonnaise, Italian seasoning, pepper, garlic powder & set aside. slice Italian style bread loaves horizontally with serrated bread knife. cut loaves into three- or four-inch sections to make small sandwiches. spread cream cheese mixture on insides of each sandwiches’ tops and bottoms. preheat oven to 350°F. when meatballs are heated, spoon onto sandwiches and top with shredded mozzarella cheese. put sandwich tops on and place on a foil-lined baking sheet.

bake about 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted.


yum-we love meatball "grinders"(the correct term-he-he) but you have to make fresh meatballs! i'm not a fan of frozen pre-made meats! it's so much better!!!


I made Elizabeth's meatball sandwhich recipe 2 nights ago and it was a big hit! The spread is yummy.Not too rich like some people thought.


This reminds me I should make our meatball subs again soon.
