Looks wonderful. A m going to make this next week. Might do it Saturday instead!!!!

Was pretty good. Thaw the balls first. We had a lot of leftovers. Would do it again!

I baked the bread at 350 degrees for the entire baking time. I thought the bottom of the bread would burn if cooked at a higher temperature which I believe it would have because it was starting to get dark when I pulled it out. I had also simmered the meatballs and spaghetti sauce prior to baking on the bread because I didn't think the frozen meatballs would cook through and be hot enough in the short amount of baking time. These tasted OK but could use some additional spicing up with perhaps garlic/onion powder or oregano.

My family loves this, it is easy to make, and it tastes AMAZING! You have to be careful to not brown the bread to much in step 2 or else it is hard to eat & it falls apart, but other than that it is perfection!!!1

I've been looking like crazy for the 'meatball sandwich' that is being sliced on the beginning of your video; low and behold I found it! Called,"Mama Mia's Meatball Bake"! You can be sure this is on my coming week's menu! I will certainly rate this recipe next week. Looks so tasty! Thank you for another awesome recipe! 'little ole' Ohio cook'

Sounds great. Will make the next time the nephews are in town.

Possibly this oven is too hot, but bottom got quite dark going in and out three times. Needed more seasoning Surprised, what with bread, sauce and meatballs being seasoned. Crisp and good. Would make again.
