I have expanded my site to having more of a DIY & lifestyle things attached to it. I will continue to do my simple recipes for you guys! Don’t worry! 😊
A little update because I haven’t been around much lately, we have finally found a home! We still haven’t moved it yet 😩so even these posts will be touch and go. We are actually taking on a big project, living in a fixer upper! You’ll be able to check out all of that here once we get started. With all of that being said, we are piled on at my mom’s house (10 people, 3.5 families, living in a 3 bed 2 bath… So fun). So I have been doing my best in making sure everybody has dinner in their bellies… most nights, it’s hard working around that many tastebuds! But tonight I had an all around winner! It took me about 15 minutes to prepare it and 7 of those minutes were used cooking the bread in the oven… a few of those minutes were also spent shaking children off of my legs so really, you don’t get much easier than this one here!
All the fixin’s:
I know this looking overwhelming *sarcasm* but hang in there with me!
You will need a frozen bag of meatballs (32 oz)- thawed, so take them out in the morning. These Wal-Mart meatballs honestly aren’t half bad, of course they aren’t homemade but we’ve used them for spaghetti, bbq and sweet and savory meatballs and they have yet to fail us!
A jar of sauce! Any sauce will do, we chose this nice jar that was on sale & sounded good.
This is where I made a slight mistake, we forgot to grab mozzarella cheese at the store so we settled for Italian cheese, this was completely fine choice but I would prefer the mozzarella… but if you DON’T like mozzarella, this would be a grand substitute! Regardless, you will need 4 cups of shredded cheese!
A loaf of garlic bread… any kid is fine. This was cheap & so naturally, we grabbed this one. You will want to open it up and cut it into strips, horizontally.
Lay your garlic bread prices facing upwards in a greased 9×13 casserole pan. Bake as directed, mine was thawed for 5-7 minutes at 450°. I decided to bake mine the whole 7 minutes so it wouldn’t get soggy. Once it was done cooking, you’ll want to turn your oven down to 350°.
After taking your bread out you’ll sprinkle half your bag of cheese on the bread… you could cut back on the cheese if you want but we are huge cheese eaters around here!
Add you thawed bag of frozen meat balls
Pour your sauce over the meatballs as evenly as you can then spread it with a spoon, I flipped each meatball so it was evenly coated
Sprinkle the rest of the cheese over the top, put in the oven at 350° for 25-30 minutes. And take it out
here’s what it looked like once I cut my chunk out of it.
