Itching for something new for dinner? Try these Chicken Bacon Meatball Subs tonight!

Yum! Instead of the Spicy Meatball Sandwiches that are on our June Menu Plan, I whipped up these Chicken Bacon Meatball Subs for dinner last night and holy cow, were they delicious!

In fact, I’m going to eat the leftovers for lunch today…just as soon as I finish this post.

Chicken Bacon Meatball Subs

These meatballs are super easy to make and honestly, they’re the perfect alternative to your standard meatball. Throw together some Homemade French Fries, Parmesan Garlic Baked Potatoes or even 5 Ingredient Simple Smashed Potatoes for a side dish and you’ve got the perfect comfort meal!

I can’t say they are a healthier option because, well…bacon is just not a healthy option. But, you could always leave it out if you are trying to eat a lighter diet.

Either way, they taste amazing and your family is going to love these Meatball Subs, so be sure to give this recipe a try!

Here’s the recipe:
