  1. This sounds tasty. Sounds perfect for a quick and tasty Friday night meal. Two questions: 1) I am not a fan of mayo. What would happen if I left it out? 2) Does the bread get really soggy? Look forward to trying. Thanks for posting.

    • We did it and it was great! You do not taste the mayo and we added a can of tomato sauce to supplement the lack of 4 oz of sauce (calls for 28 oz marinara we had a 24 oz). We used low fat cheese and mayo, and the bread did not really get soggy it really held its own still. Cheap, easy, simple, loooove your dishes Corey!

    • THIS SAYS FALL, BUT I LIKE CASSEROLES WHEN THE WEATHER IS TOO HOT TO DO A LOT OF COOKING. WILL TRY THIS ONE

  2. Patricia Wolf says:

    This was delish. I followed the recipe until it called for yogurt (i didnt have yougurt) so i used lite sour cream and used canola mayonaise instead of the regular. Also used whole wheat bread instead of the french bread. It came out yammmiii. Thank you for sharing this recipe!!!

  3. I have never used frozen meatballs before….is there a brand you like? I have tried several of your other recipes – and they were all a big hit – so I would totally trust your opinion. Thanks!
