In a medium bowl, mix together the minced beef, breadcrumbs, onion, salt and pepper, garlic granules and half of the mozzarella cheese. Form the mixture into a log and place it into an 20x20cm baking dish.
Bake for 50 minutes in the preheated oven or until the centre is no longer pink. Let stand for 5 minutes, then slice into 1.25cm slices. Divide the slices over the baguette, cover with marinara sauce and sprinkle remaining mozzarella cheese over.
Wrap each sandwich with foil and return to the oven for 15 minutes, until bread is lightly toasted and cheese is melted. Let stand 15 minutes before eating. Each sandwich serves 2.
