- 1/3 cup chopped green onions
- 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
- 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 loaf (1 pound) Italian bread, cut into 1-inch slices
- 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
- 3-1/2 cups spaghetti sauce

Reviews for Baked Simple Meatball Stroganoff
Sort By :
"Runny, flavor highly dependent on sauce, bread turned to mush, and not very visually appealing once served. Name of the dish is not accurate and did not taste anything like a meatball sub (which is one of my favorite sandwiches). Not worth the calories, time, or money spent. Will NOT be making again"
"I had leftover spaghetti and meatballs (frozen pre-cooked) and I knew my husband wouldn't want that again. So I used the leftover garlic bread as the base. I used those meatballs and the balance of the spaghetti sauce, adding another bottle of sauce. Since the meatballs didn't have onions in them, I added onion powder in the sauce. We really enjoyed this because it seemed like a totally different dish. Would make again."
"This is not Stroganoff at all. This is Italian and Stroganoff is Russian, made with mushrooms, beef, sour cream and cream of mushroom soup, as well as onions. This sounds like a meatball sub casserole."
"The meatballs were really dry and not very good--overall, just not something we liked at all!"
"I have made this recipe for years, we love it. Leave out the water, use your own sauce. Use the good bread, we prefer unseeded. This used to be called meatball sub casserole, everything is better with mini meatballs. A salad or vegetable and you are all set."
