Meaty Spaghetti Sauce and Bubble Up Garlic Bread


Spaghetti has been my favorite meal ever since I can remember, and  I have been making this sauce forever!  I like to make it in the crock pot so that it can simmer slowly all day long.  This recipe makes a lot of sauce.  Our family usually gets five full meals from it.   Here’s what you will need: DSC_0030

Brown ground sirloin with onion,  one tablespoon garlic salt,  and 1 teaspoon of coarse ground black pepper. DSC_0032

While you brown the meat, measure your spices. DSC_0033

Add tomato products and worcestershire sauce to browned meat. DSC_0034

Spices are next! DSC_0035

Stir well and cook in the crock pot 6 to 8 hours on low heat. DSC_0036

This sauce is delicious!  The rich tomato flavor is amazing!  Use this sauce to make lasagne, pizza, and, of course, to top pasta.


Freeze whatever is left over for a quick and easy meal later. DSC_0057

I almost always make some kind of bread to go with pasta.  One of our favorites is super easy!  I call it Bubble Up Garlic Bread. DSC_0055

Start with some frozen dinner rolls. DSC_0037

Decide how many rolls you want to make and set them out to thaw for about an hour. DSC_0038

Using kitchen shears, cut each roll in half.


Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in the microwave.  Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. DSC_0040

Add 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic salt and 1/2 teaspoon oregano. DSC_0041

Brush the pan with the mixture.  Dip each roll into the olive oil/butter and add to the pan in a single layer.  Pour any of the remaining mixture over the rolls.  Put in a warm place and allow to rise for at least an hour. DSC_0042

Bake at 325 degrees until rolls begin to get golden brown.  (15 to 20 minutes)  These absolutely melt in your mouth.  Yummmmmm! DSC_0043 Here are the printables!
