Baked Simple Meatball Stroganoff
Total TimePrep: 40 min. Bake: 30 min.
This was delicious but definitely NOT a stroganoff. Stroganoff has sour cream in it. This seemed more like a Meatball Strata to me.I left out the water too.
This recipe as is isn't that great. As another reviewer stated, the flavor is great but the bread is soggy and wet. I've been making this for years without the water and we much prefer it that way. One substitution I've also made is to just butter the bread instead of using cream cheese.
I first made this recipe 12 years ago when it was called Meatball Sub Casserole on this website. I agree "Stroganoff" is not the appropriate name for this. There is still a cooking for 2 version of this recipe out on the website under Meatball Sub Casserole. You can substitute your favorite meatball recipe or use frozen meatballs to speed up the prep. I also use less water (or none to prevent the sogginess that some complain of.
This was pretty good, with the changes I made. I toasted the bread, but it was still kinda mushy, so I'll toast both sides next time in my toaster oven. I also used only 1/2 of the cream cheese, and had plenty left over. My husband tasted it out of the bowl, and requested a salad so that he could have some of the cream cheese mix on it! LOL! In this size pan, I was only able to put in about 7 slices, so you really can use some left over Italian bread. I also made my own meatball recipe. Tried and true around here! And the 4 1/2 cups sauce is really only about 1 jar of sauce. Again, you can pick out your favorite flavors to make it your own. And, I also didn't use the water.
The taste of this dish is good, but the consistency is terrible. The bread turns into a mushy mess. If I ever tried this again (which I probably won't) I would leave out the cup of water.
This was really very good. I used premade frozen turkey meatballs and a homemade sourdough loaf that was past its prime. Did not use as much water as recommended. Will definitely make again!
YUM!! I will make this again BUT instead of cutting the bread in slices I will cube them. It'll be easier to serve.
Very tasty, my family loves it...
I made this exactly as written for our youth group and they loved it. One tip to keep the bread from getting soggy is to make sure it is completely covered with the mayonnaise/cream cheese mixture so none of the sauce gets to the bread. The bread turns out kind of crispy on the bottom and not soggy at all.
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
