This would be a great recipe for a church dinner or other potluck. Or if you are a working mom you could easily assemble it ahead of time, but I would hold off on putting the spaghetti sauce on until you are actually ready to cook it. I think it would make your bread soggy.
The first thing I did was slice my french bread into 1 inch slices and layer them in the bottom of a lightly greased casserole dish. After that, I combined my cream cheese and Italian mix and spread that on top of the sliced bread.
Next I cut up some thawed out meatballs and placed them on top of the cheese mixture. I was pretty random with this. Some I cut in half, some in thirds and some in fourths. No rhyme or reason, just do what ever you prefer.
Next, top with your favorite spaghetti sauce!
Then add Mozzerella Cheese
Now you are ready to pop it in the oven and cook until hot and bubbly and your cheese starts to brown. This takes approximately 25 minutes.
Now your ready to taste the goodness!
