For the meatballs: Soak toast in lukewarm water and squeeze to remove excess liquid. In a bowl, combine toast, cream, ground meat and egg. Season with salt and pepper. Add onions and arugula and mix well. If mixture is too soft, add breadcrumbs as needed. Form mixture into 4-6 large meatballs. In a pot, heat tomato juice and Tabasco. Add meatballs and simmer.
Meanwhile, sprinkle the bread loaves with cheese and bake according to package directions. Remove loaves from oven, cut each in half, place meatballs on bottom halves, replace with top halves, and secure with wooden skewers. Serve with arugula.
