This meatball bubble up bake boasts all the flavors of a meatball sub

Print this recipe
Take your favorite meatball sub and cross it with a casserole, and you get this scrumptious meatball bubble-up bake that can ably feed a crowd. Refrigerated biscuits make the recipe that follows ultra simple, and you could even rely on store-bought or frozen meatballs to dramatically cut down on the time it takes to get this dish out of the oven and onto the table.
As with other bubble up bake recipes, this one allows the biscuits to bake in the sauce, giving them a tender, moist texture. Cover the bake as it cooks to ensure the biscuits are fully cooked through before serving.

Form small, golfball-sized meatballs and arrange on a nonstick baking sheet.
Bake about 20 minutes, or until they are nicely browned on all sides.

Grease a 9-by-13 casserole dish, and arrange the biscuit pieces over the bottom.

Bake for 20 minutes, remove the foil, and bake another 15 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and browned.
