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.
