Meatball Casserole


  • pound of ground beef
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped parsley
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of oil
  • 1 Baguete bread sliced
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3 cups marinara sauce


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C. Meanwhile, we make the meatballs. Mix the meat in a bowl with the bread crumbs, 2 finely chopped garlic cloves, egg, and parsley. Combine perfectly and assemble the meatballs.
  • In a frying pan, heat the oil and cook the meatballs in 2 batches until no pink remains—approximately 6 minutes for each set. Remove from the heat and drain the excess oil.
  • Grease a baking pan. Put a layer of baguette bread on the bottom.
  • In a bowl, mix the melted butter, 2 finely chopped garlic cloves, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Brush the baguette with this mixture and top with 1 cup of mozzarella, a layer of marinara, the meatballs, and the remaining mozzarella.
  • Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until the cheese melts, and that's it! Serve hot.
