I am all about the simple dinners right now. It’s hot, and I don’t want to cook. Like ever. This meatball sub recipe does use the stovetop and oven, but only for a few minutes. I promise, it’s one you can do on a super hot day without making the house unbearable.
And it’s super tasty. These subs throw together in under 20 minutes, but they taste better than Subway’s version (this is my husband and neighbors’ considered opinion).
The downside? These aren’t the healthiest meal you could make. On the other hand, there are things you can do to help things out. Try making the meatballs yourself from ground turkey or chicken to lighten them up (here’s a great go-t0 recipe). You can also switch the hoagie rolls out for their healthier whole wheat or whole grain version. Or you can accept their inherent nature. It’s okay to indulge every once in a while, right? That’s what I keep telling myself…
