Meatball Hoagie Braid
Hi, I am Alyssa from What’s Cooking, Love?
I am so excited to be here guest posting at Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker.  I have participated in Kristen’s monthly Improv Challenge.  It is so much fun, if you haven’t participated yet, you should definitely check it out! 

Thank you Kristen for inviting me over to your blog!  I am really excited to be here and to participate in the Improv Challenge!

I am a wife to my wonderful husband and a mother to my 1 year old son.  I like to blog about cooking and love food!  My blog is about cooking easy, good food, using shortcuts and timesavers.  I also host a weekly link party, Showcase Your Talent Thursday.  I hope that you stop by and visit.  

Meatball Hoagie Braid

Since I am a working mom, I always like to find easy meals that I can make fast when I get home from work.  I rather spend my evening with my family than spend it cooking dinner.  These Meatball Hoagie Braids are really easy to make.  They can even be made using leftover meatballs or store bought meatballs.  

Since I don’t like beef, I used turkey meatballs, which are also a little healthier, but you can always use ground beef as well.  These hoagies were so delicious! It was like going to a pizza restaurant for dinner, except that it was homemade.  I hope that you all enjoy this, we can’t wait to make it again!
