Toasted Baguette with Melted Mozzarella and Meatballs in Marinara


• 1 baguette, sliced in half lengthwise

• 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded

• 1 lb. meatballs (homemade or store-bought)

• 2 cups marinara sauce

• Olive oil

• Fresh basil, for garnish (optional)


Step 1:

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Place the baguette halves on a baking sheet, cut side up. Drizzle lightly with olive oil.

Step 2:

Bake the baguette halves in the oven for about 5-7 minutes, or until they are golden and toasted.

Step 3:

While the baguette is toasting, heat the marinara sauce in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the meatballs to the sauce and simmer until they are heated through, about 10 minutes.

Step 4:

Once the baguette is toasted, remove it from the oven and sprinkle a generous amount of shredded mozzarella cheese over both halves. Return the baguette to the oven and bake for another 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Step 5:

Remove the baguette from the oven and spoon the meatballs and marinara sauce evenly over the bottom half of the baguette.

Step 6:

Sprinkle more shredded mozzarella over the meatballs, then place the top half of the baguette back on top. Bake in the oven for an additional 5 minutes, or until the cheese on top is melted and gooey.

Step 7:

Remove from the oven, let it cool slightly, and garnish with fresh basil if desired. Slice the baguette into individual servings.

Step 8:
