1/3 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
3 T grated Parmesan cheese
1 pound ground beef
1 loaf (1 pound) Italian bread, cut into 1.5-inch slices
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 jar (28 ounce) spaghetti or marinara sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
In a bowl, combine onions, bread crumbs & parmesan cheese. Mix in 1LB beef. Shape into 1-inch balls; place on a greased rack in a shallow baking pan. Bake at 400F for 15-20 minutes until no longer pink.
Arrange bread in a single layer in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish (all of the bread might not be used). Combine the cream cheese, sour cream, Italian seasoning and pepper. Spread over the bread. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup mozzarella.
Combine the spaghetti sauce & garlic; add meatballs. Pour over cheese mixture; sprinkle with remaining mozzarella. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30 minutes or until heated through.
Review: Tasted good. I made the mistake of using french bread and it didn't turn out as well as it would have had I used the Italian bread. Was really good and moist. Joshua and I both agreed that we'd make it again. Leftovers were gone in the next day.
