This recipe is based on one of last years Pillsbury bake off finalists. My family loves meatball sandwiches, and this is a fun way to make them. We like to use Turkey meatballs, but I'm sure regular meatballs or Italian Sausage would be great too.

- 1 cup pizza sauce
- 10 medium meatballs, cooked and sliced,about
- 2 cups mozzarella cheese
- parmesan cheese (optional)
- 1 tablespoon melted butter or 1 tablespoon olive oil

Yum! So easy to throw together and so good. I made my own french bread dough in my ABM instead of buying it and it worked great! I also used Easy Homemade Pizza Sauce Easy Homemade Pizza Sauce by Zenith. This is definitely one I'll be making again! Thanks Elmolvsu!
This was really good! My son absolutely loved it. The only thing I would change is to cut the French bread dough in half and make two smaller loafs rather than one big one. The big one was difficult to work with, and some of the dough didn't quite get crispy and brown - it was a little soggy. With these few changes, I think this recipe's a winner!
