Easy Dinner Recipes
After a hard day at the office or running after kids, creating a meal is often the last thing we want to do. That’s when we need easy dinner recipes. And this is one tops my list. You can create this Cheesy Meatball Texas Toast Casserole in less than 30 minutes. And it doesn’t require any prep time, cutting veggies or marinating the chicken.
If you’re short on time, opt for frozen meatballs. I often call this recipe by leftover meatball casserole. If there’s any leftover meatball from previous dinners, I freeze them, especially for this recipe.

Start with your meatballs. I used pre-cooked meatballs for this Cheesy Meatball Texas Toast Casserole. Cook them as per your box instruction. As your meatballs is cooking, start making your Texas Toast (homemade or bought in a box!.
Happiness is a good piece of garlic bread, won’t you agree?
Cook the garlic bread as per the box instruction. I like my garlic bread in this Cheesy Meatball Texas Toast Casserole with extra crunch factor. If you do too, cook the garlic bread for an extra 2-3 minutes to get a more brown-er bottom. Oh-the-crust!
Once the garlic bread is done, the only thing left to do is organizing it. Rip your Texas Toast (careful, it’s hot!) into smaller pieces. Spread the pieces to cover your entire pan as evenly as you can.
Finish off assembling by sprinkling some dried basil. Basil will help kick some aroma into your dish.
Now let’s grab some quality slices of cheese. Cover the meatballs with the cheese. I used Provolone Cheese because it gives the dish that Italian flavor. If you want to use another kind, I’d say go for it.
Leftover Meatball Casserole
If you have some leftover meatballs from the back of your freezer, it’s time to take them out. Another good idea is to make extra when cooking meatballs for times when you don’t feel like spending hours in the kitchen. This cheesy saucy beauty will make your family forget they are eating leftover meatball casserole.
