Dream Dinners: Meatball Marinara Stuffed French Bread

If you were to ask me my favorite food, I’d have 2 answers, one sweet and the other savory.  My two favorite foods are ice cream and sandwiches.  Each month, when I make my Dream Dinners selections, there is always 1-2 meals that I haven’t tried yet that I am really excited about.  This month that meal was the Meatball Marinara Stuffed French Bread.  Last night, I made the sandwich and it lived up to my high expectations.  Upon assembly day, I realized that it did take a bit longer to make in store.  But as I spread the cream cheese mixture, meatballs, marinara, and cheese on the bread, I knew that I should be looking forward to a delicious meal.  It was super easy to make at home.  I preheated the oven to 350 and put my foil wrapped sandwich on a baking sheet.  I cooked it for 35 minutes and opened the foil to let it brown a bit for 10 minutes.  We pulled out stuff to make a side salad and dinner was ready.   Our meal was so yummy!  The bread was perfectly browned and crusty with the well seasoned marinara sauce and meatballs.  The cream cheese and mozzarella rounded out the flavors.  We had to show some restraint and save the 3rd portion for leftovers for lunch today and Mike won the rights to those.  We loved this meal and can’t wait for it to show up on the menu for another month.
