Preparation

  1. In a large bowl, combine beef, sausage, salt, garlic powder, pepper, basil, half of the parmesan, egg, bread crumbs, water. It works well to squish the mixture with your hands.
  2. Shape the meatballs into balls roughly larger than a golf ball, or desired size.
  3. Coat a large pan with olive oil and bring to a medium-high heat.
  4. Brown the meatballs on all sides.
  5. Set aside meatballs and remove excess grease.
  6. Return the meatballs to the hot pan, add marinara sauce and simmer for 15 minutes, or until meatballs are cooked through.
  7. Cut a long rectangle through the top of the bread loaf and partially unstuff the loaf.
  8. Layer the bottom of the loaf with half the mozzarella, cooked meatballs, sauce, then top with the rest of the mozzarella and parmesan.
  9. Bake for 25 minutes at 350˚F (180˚C).
  10. Enjoy!
